In essence, participants will be able to explore what relevant data they can share to benefit their organisation and the charitable sector. They will also hear from individuals who have successfully accessed and deployed technology and big datasets in their organisation. A more detailed agenda can be found here.

The event will be held at the Guardian’s London headquarters located at Kings Place, 90 York Way, London N1 9GU in association with TechSoup Global

TechSoup Global is an international non-profit, founded in 1987 on the belief that both technology & data are powerful enablers for social change, driving the creation of innovative solutions and informed decision making.

 

This is an invitation only event.
