Over the past two years Tactical Tech has built up a wide-ranging network of practitioners working with technology and non-profits. Its large-scale workshops (Source Events), small expert meetings (Guru Gatherings), and consultancy work (eRider projects and a plethora of related technology/non-profit projects), enables them to identify and bring together many of the leading actors globally working with implementation in the non-profit sector. Their convergent projects mutually support each other, serving to continuously grow the content of events and resources as well as the circle of people involved in these initiatives.
Phase II of NGO-in-a-box aims to take advantage of Tactical Tech's convergent projects and in addition provide a way to effectively integrate its networks. Tactical Tech aims to utilise its growing inter-regional and cross-issue network, to share this to create well grounded resources based on needs and with a firm anchor in face-to-face meetings.
Tactical Tech is an Amsterdam registered non-profit foundation (Stichting). Its mission is to help non-profits in developing and transition countries to utilise new technologies. It does this through organising workshops, collating tools and materials and providing consultancy and advice to a range of projects.
