Fast Forward accelerates technology-led nonprofits growth and scale through hands-on mentorship, financial capital, and other resources tailored to the specific needs of organizations playing a role in the intersection of technology and social impact. Fast Forward works exclusively with nonprofits leveraging technology to scale, and focuses on organizations building solutions to global issues like healthcare, human rights, the environment, and education.

Fast Forward’s 13-week accelerator program equips tech nonprofits with $25,000 in funding, access to 100 mentors, connections to funders, and immersion in the tech nonprofit community. The program culminates in a high visibility Demo Day in front of hundreds of investors and philanthropists. Fast Forward continues to build out its ecosystem of support through its Tech Nonprofit Directory and its Tech for Good program.
