Inspired by the results from our Discover Impact event during SXSW last month, 121Giving, Austin+SocialGood and YOUvolution are partnering together to host the first in a series of events we’re calling Spark Impact: - This series is focused on empowering collaboration and innovation in Austin.

Please join us on April 26th from 6-9pm at Urban Co-Lab as we host interactive roundtable discussions with innovative leaders and local Austin change makers. Their work is focused on closing gaps in the categories of Education, Sustainable Communities, Food Access, Clean Water and Industry Innovation.

One winning concept that bubbles up from this series will be brought to fruition and presented at the ATX Plus Social Good Summit during Austin Startup Week. We hope you’ll join us, whether you bring ideas, passion, experience or want to collaborate to help build new solutions, all are welcome.
