And for this edition of Better Than Most, we will be going to The Presidio in San Francisco into the home of Fast Forward, an organization that invests in entrepreneurs who are using technology to accelerate social impact.

But what about tech nonprofits? What do they do? Where do they go for funding? Who provides the support system for them? Well, up to about four years ago, the answer would have been, who knows? But now, it’s an organization called Fast Forward, and it’s a pleasure to have with us their executive director and co-founder Shannon Farley.
