SV2 Happy Hour – San Francisco

Please join us at an SV2 Happy Hour in San Francisco on Wednesday, April 24 for drinks and nibbles at the South Beach home of SV2 Partners Kathryn Phillips and Gary Grellman. We will also have a short presentation by Jim Fruchterman, founder and former CEO of Benetech and founder and current CEO of Tech Matters. Join us for what promises to be a fascinating discussion about tech for good, and how professionals who want to give back can best engage and support the social sector.
