Many of us donate our time, energy, and resources to nonprofit organizations that make our community stronger. Let’s share what we are doing!

You should come to this session if: • You are looking for opportunities to volunteer • You have a favorite nonprofit that you work with and you want to tell others about it. (See additional information below.) • You are curious about how nonprofits in the twin cities can support the entrepreneurial and tech communities

It’s recommended that those presenting focus on the following: • What nonprofit organization do you represent and what is your position? • What does your organization do? • What can the Twin Cities technology and entrepreneur community do to help your organization? • How can your organization help the Twin Cities technology and entrepreneur community?

If you are interested in presenting, email Please include the following, which will be included on a slide: • Organization name • A sentence describing what your organization does • Organization website and how people can contact you/your organization for more information
