Philanthrogeek Happy Hour with Alex Budak of StartSomeGood
Philanthrogeek.com is scheduled to go live on January 15th. On January 9th, we are hosting a happy hour for Seattle-based social giving leaders (crowdfunders, giving circle organizers and participants and other philanthropy innovators).
We want to introduce you to Alex Budak, co-founder of StartSomeGood. More details below.
Alex is visiting Seattle from Washington, D.C. He and his SSG team were huge supporters of the Adventures in New Giving project that planted the seeds for Philanthrogeek.
So, come on out to connect to local leaders in philanthropic and micro-funding innovation, learn a little about Philanthrogeek and give your feedback before we launch, and welcome a really cool out-of-town crowdfunding entreprenuer.
