Social Enterprise Auckland

Betterment Global

We would like to use NationBuilder (http://nationbuilder.com/) to build our website, create their online community and manage their CRM system.

New Zealand Medical Student Association

NZMSA exist to represent, unite and empower medical students on the views, issues and concerns relevant to them.

They need to use an online platform to engage with their community and promote their 2018 conference.

What’s in it for me?

First and foremost we aim to help local non-profits. NPOs often have quite a lot of IT challenges. Through this, you may find that you meet new people from different companies or industries, find contacts if you’re looking for work, or get to step outside of your comfort zone and learn something new through a weekend project. Or just have a fun weekend working in a team to deliver something that is really useful to the community!

What can we expect as results for the NPOs?

This depends on you, your team and the needs of your chosen NPO! Over the many successful weekends we have run in Auckland, we have helped numerous NPOs with websites, IT infrastructure, design, branding, content as well as general advice.
