After Months of Hacking the Violence, Goodie Nation Shows Off At Demo Night

by Angela King

Goodie Innovation Demo Night is like graduation: half presentation + half celebration

Goodie Nation’s Goodie Innovation Pre-Accelerator is a four-month mission-driven tech program designed to launch early-stage startups that help reduce inequality gaps. The Fall 2017 Cohort concentrated on public safety, with the goal of reducing violence 40 percent by the year 2020.

Goodie uses tech startup entrepreneurship philosophies and methodologies, combined with culturally-relevant tactics, to create change — aiming for 10x impact, because suffering is not acceptable.

Join tech and mission-driven influencers, professionals, community organizers, passionate people, family, and friends as teams in the Hack The Violence Pre-Accelerator showcase their tech products focused on reducing violence. It’s going down January 22nd. RSVP here!
