The Tech Exchange

A New Community for Social Entrepreneurs

Community. Growth. Connections.

The experience of being an entrepreneur can be daunting. Even more so, when you embark on that journey alone. As leaders in the Civic Tech space, it is imperative that we provide opportunities for others to grow along with us on this mission to make a positive impact on the world. It is equally important for each of us to have a supportive community nearby while pursuing our dream of living a purpose-filled life. Committing your life and career to service is a major responsibility, with great reward.  But it is a mission that none of us can accomplish alone.


In 2017, we partnered with Geek Empowered to provide the necessary tools and resources for social entrepreneurs to not only grow their digital footprint but have quality digital services available to be successful, grow, and make an impact.

“Empowerment starts with the people, transformation starts with the tech exchange.”

What is the Tech Exchange?

The Next Step in Your Journey to Social Entrepreneurship

The Tech Exchange is a marketplace meant to improve opportunities for independent developers while providing a valuable growth resource for entrepreneurs. The Tech Exchange web service connects small-medium businesses an on-demand workforce for all things related to web, content, and app development. Developers become vetted members of this platform to bid on projects to augment their deal flow.


Although technology is widely accessible and becoming less expensive to use, startups and small business owners don’t have adequate capital to apply or build technology that will enhance their business offering or operation. 


Traditionally, tasks like this have been accomplished by hiring a large temporary workforce or going without the innovation altogether. Conversely, many highly skilled minority "techies" are underemployed or unemployed, leaving them on the downward slope of the tech boom. 


The Tech Exchange platform enables developers and businesses to achieve their goals more quickly and at a lower cost than was previously possible.
