A makesense tech is an event that gathers techies as well as citizens and entrepreneurs who tackle social or environmental issues so as to use technology as a tool to achieve a positive impact. This format of event arose from the terrific mobilization on February 2018, when gangsters organized 22 events in cities across the globe on technology for good.
This format is comprised of two phases. First, tech for good entrepreneurs share their experience and insights on how a specific technology can unlock a specific social or environmental challenge: this is the inspiration pitch. Then, during the barcamp mode, participants can ask for tech or social expertise on a specific challenge depending on their needs. This allows new collaborations to emerge.
