Social Impact

Welcome to Social Impact

Greater Boston is where you surround yourself with the best and brightest in defining progress in our time. Simply put, we believe our home - the Athens of America - is a global city because our trademark export has been the breakthrough solutions to the problems too often described as intractable and overwhelming. It is our goal to ensure this tradition continues and where everyone is equipped with the resources to contribute - small or big - to the bold ideas necessary to solve the social issues we deem frustratingly inexcusable in modern society.


The BUILD Entrepreneur Games

More than 1,000 players from Boston’s startup, tech, and VC community will come together for an afternoon of fierce but friendly competition in games like dodgeball, tug of war, and inflatable pony racing – all while enjoying unlimited food and beer! All proceeds go to support BUILD’s youth entrepreneurship program.

Tech Gives Back 2017

Tech Gives Back offers Boston's tech scene an opportunity to get out of the office and into the community to remodel classrooms, plant community gardens, prep and serve meals in soup kitchens, provide interview training for veterans, and much more! Don't miss this chance to give back to Boston!
