Is Social Good the Next Killer App?

Monday, March 16
5:00PM - 6:00PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 5ABC
Austin Convention Center


Something sexy happened at SxSW 2014 that didn’t involve Lady GaGa: an unprecedented number of do-gooding Geekerati showed up, wanting to change the world. Does this mean that social good has “made it”, or just become the latest trend to generate lots of hype but little impact? Shiny new platforms, brands and tools promise game-changing technologies & society-saving outcomes, but do they get us any closer to actually solving the world’s most challenging social problems?

It’s time we put the SXSW community to work doing what it does best - leading industry innovation. Come to this session ready to get your hands dirty exploring what authentic, lasting social change could really look like.
