Capital One Digital for Good
Technology is advancing at a rapid pace but many are being left behind. In fact, a 2018 NetHope survey found that 70% of leading global nonprofits do not have a technology strategy*. In 2016 Capital One – in the middle of its own digital transformation – took the initiative to create a community space for tech professionals to connect with nonprofits and work together on developing effective digital solutions. A series of annual events took place for the next four years, allowing for the collaboration between charities with digital needs and developers who want to use their skills for good.

To reinforce the collaborative spirit of the event, there were no prizes to be handed out to winners; participants were solely focused on improving the charities’ digital struggles throughout the events, the incentive being their contribution to the digital transformation charities will go through.
