About the Event


The holidays remind us of the importance of giving and sharing. Austin is not only a generous community, but also one of the most technologically savvy cities with many entrepreneurs who care about improving and advancing society through technology. Join us for a special Austin Forum Tech Expo showcasing how local companies and organizations are developing and applying technology for social good. A set of eight (8) companies and organizations will be selected to present lightning talks that showcase how they make it possible to give and share resources, effort, ideas, and funding to positively impact Austin and the world. Following the lighting talks, guests will have the opportunity to visit with each technology company/organization in the expo.
