MADE POSSIBLE BY A GRANT FROM
Goodie Nation Demo Day is like graduation: half presentation + half celebration. Join tech and social impact influencers, professionals, community organizers, passionate people, family, and friends as teams in our social impact pre-accelerator showcase their tech products focused on connecting people impacted by gentrification to ways to make/save money.
Inspired by Google’s X Moonshot Factory, we created Goodie Innovation – a six-month tech social impact hybrid incubator + accelerator designed to launch technologies that help raise basic need averages of under-served communities up to their respective country’s national average by combining contributions from passionate and committed people, subject-matter experts and skilled professionals. With help from a Community Partners grant by Google, the Atlanta Fall 2016 Cohort concentrated on economic development with the goal of producing tech social enterprises that to connect people living/working in areas affected by gentrification to emerging nearby economic opportunities.
At Goodie Nation, we run toward hard problems with a sense of urgency because real people continue to suffer each daily until the problems are solved. We use tech startup entrepreneurship philosophies and methodologies, combined with culturally-relevant tactics, to create change. Like Google X, we aim for 10x impact because suffering is not acceptable to us. Join our tribe as we make things happen.

HELP ACCELERATE GOODIE NATION
In 2017, we plan to produce a social impact tech incubator + accelerator focused on public health and safety as well as to do more with under-served youth and college students. But we can’t do this without increasing our operational capacity. That’s where we need your help! It takes about $140 to put a person through our normal Social Impact Process, and that’s where we need your help! in order to make it a reality. Please consider making a donation today.
