  • After a long break that disrupted us a little (can you guess what was the cause?), we're back with another event! Join us on November 26th 2020 at 5:30PM on Zoom for our November meetup!

    Here's what we have in store:
    * Kyle Usher from Nesta will speak about 'How Startups and Charities work closer together and collaborate'. He's done a lot of great work in this area in and outside of Nesta so it'll be a great talk!

    * Project updates! You'll hear how our projects with Drake Music and YoungScot are doing. We'll also announce a few new projects that are just starting! There will be opportunities to volunteer and take part!

    * New initiatives! We've been listening and learning and are cooking something up around supporting charities with fundraising!

    * Opportunity for charities to request help and seek advice with most pressing digital challenges

    See you then!

    Note: We'll send you the Zoom link closer to the event, after you signed up!
