Join Wade Lahring and Kelly Tweddell as they walk us through their experiences on growing a philanthropic product and lessons learned along the way
Building a Philanthropic Future at Scale
Product Calgary is excited to host Wade Lahring and Kelly Tweddell, Product Managers at Benevity at our very first 2023 meetup on January 25! We will be hosted by Benevity and sponsored by Alberta Innovates.
Benevity's software is used by over a third of the Fortune 500 including Google, Apple, Microsoft, and Amazon. It dramatically reduces the cost of employee volunteering and matching programs, enabling more businesses to do more good at lower cost. Benevity has built a database of over 2 million vetted nonprofits so companies can send nonprofits money risk-free and without having to vet the company themselves. It has also pioneered a disbursement model which has helped shift the corporate giving space from expensive, slow, and risky cheque-based payment to cheap, fast, and safe aggregated electronic payments. Its mission is to act as a catalyst to infuse a culture of Goodness into the world.
Wade Lahring and Kelly Tweddell are product managers at Benevity and, during this presentation, will share some of their experiences working on B2B Enterprise SaaS, and lessons learned along the way.
