Social Entrepreneurship and Art - TUGG Tech Night at the Museum Recap

TUGG (Technology Underwriting Greater Good) hosted a lively event at the ICA Boston to celebrate social good entrepreneurs. The event brought together members of the business, tech and startup community to hear from four companies that participate in the TUGG program.

The event was sponsored by Invaluable and Cuseum.  Attendees enjoyed activities led by the nonprofits and tours of the current Nari Ward exhibition led by Transformative Culture Project.

A summary of the one-minute pitches:

  • Mbadika hosts workshops for children to give them confidence to bring their ideas into reality.
