About this event

Join us for an important discussion with three distinguished experts who are pioneering new approaches to impact assessment and funding:

Raymond Cheng, Co-Founder of Open Source Observer: This free analytics suite offers a promising model for measuring the impact of contributions to the health of an ecosystem, with potential applications for nonprofit projects.

Ken “bitbeckers” Beckers, Core Developer of Hypercerts: This protocol aims to streamline the process of funding and rewarding positive impact through a shared, decentralized database for impact claims and funding mechanisms.

Laura (LauNaMu) Navarro, Founder of Metrics Garden Labs: By developing tools to measure the "soft" contributions of a community beyond code, Metrics Garden Labs is exploring new dimensions of impact assessment.

This event provides you these opportunities:

  • Engage with leading experts and gain valuable insights into new strategies and mechanisms that are advancing impact measurement.
  • See demonstrations of the latest tools and methods being developed to measure and enhance the impact of public good projects.
  • Connect with a diverse community of nonprofits, developers, and open source enthusiasts, fostering meaningful collaborations and exchanges of ideas.

As we strive to create a more just and equitable world, it is essential that we work together to find better ways of evaluating and supporting the vital work done by nonprofits and public good technologists.

This event represents an important step in that direction, and we hope you will join us in this important conversation!

This event is supported by an award from the Filecoin Foundation for the Decentralized Web.
