Digital for Good Tech Jam 2020

We’re committed to using our skills, resources and network to drive meaningful social change that helps people and organizations succeed in a rapidly changing world – because we believe that our business can only be successful when our communities are healthy. 

The Digital for Good Tech Jam hackathon gives charities access to top tech talent. The Tech Jam pairs charities with teams from Capital One and other tech-savvy companies. Each team generously donates their skills to build a solution that amplifies their charity’s impact.

We’re on a mission to educate, empower and develop cutting-edge solutions for well-deserving charities. With a group of talented tech teams and passionate speakers, we help Canadian charities embrace and explore new technology.


Weekend Activities 


Tech Bar

The Tech Bar is stocked with consultants to answer your questions about common technology tools and software. Book a 30-minute slot to ask about how existing technology can help your charity in a specific area (e.g. marketing, communications, working from home, etc.). 

Tech Talks

Experts from Capital One and beyond will cover a range of topics that are relevant to charities today. Each talk will help you uncover the possibilities of technology. We welcome you to join as many as you can throughout the weekend. Check out the Activities Tab for more details, including topics, titles and speakers. 


There will be morning activities and fun breaks throughout the weekend to keep the creative juices flowing - check out the Activities Tab for more details!
