Founders Pledge Forum 2017: Data-Driven Philanthropy

The only event in the start-up calendar that will feed your mind AND soul.

Held at the Grove Hotel in Watford, London, the Founders Pledge Forum will take place on June 16th, directly following Founders Forum.

Why Founders Pledge Forum?


Tech innovation has enabled one of the most profitable industries in the world, with solutions generated at a rapidly increasing rate and scale. It has become an unparalleled pool of talent, wealth, creativity and productivity.

Yet, this resource continues to overwhelmingly benefit a select minority of the world’s population, while doing little to help those in the world who need it most.

#FPF17 is a rare opportunity for the tech community to deep-dive into the complex world of social problems, and acknowledge that we have a collective responsibility to do more. A melting pot where the world’s most successful entrepreneurs connect with the heroes of the third sector, to tackle some of the biggest challenges facing the planet.

This year, we will be exploring:

  • The latest news, research and movements at the intersection of charity and techology

  • How entrepreneurial skill and passion can be applied to solve social problems at global scale

  • Why start-ups, investing, and charity work aren’t all that different after all

  • How to identify and support the most impactful charity work being done at the moment

  • The exciting ways in which technology innovation can be applied for social good
