Application for Fast Forward Accelerator Program in San Fransisco, CA

Hey friends!

Per our last LT call, we decided to collaborate on the application to this amazing program.

Fast Forward Accelerator Program

Working at the intersection of social impact and tech, Fast Forward runs several programs including a summer accelerator designed exclusively for tech nonprofits. Organizations selected receive mentorship, training, and capital.

Fast Forward fosters a supportive network of tech and social sector leaders to grow the tech for good ecosystem. We want to see more organizations leverage open source software, always connected devices, inexpensive variable cost web infrastructure, and APIs to build tech solutions to critical issues in education, environment, health, and human rights. While tech nonprofits look just like your typical startup, they measure success based on impact rather than profits. Once they achieve product/market fit, they scale incredibly well, quickly reaching wide, and often hard-to-access, communities.

Through Fast Forward, the tech community achieves tremendous social impact by mobilizing their skills and resources to help these organizations succeed.


The Fast Forward accelerator provides training, mentorship, and funding to tech nonprofits. All organizations must be nonprofits leveraging technology to address problems in arts/culture, education, environment, food/agriculture, health/healthcare, human rights, poverty alleviation/economic development, or public service/civic engagement. Each organization receives a $25,000 grant, access to 100+ mentor from the tech and social sectors, and much more.

We would love nothing more than to send one of the incredible community members of OpenMRS to this program, which will surely be an amazing opportunity!
