The TechSoup Europe Network consists of 28 civil society capacity building organisations across 48 countries.
Together we serve a community of over 250,000 civil society organisations from West to East and from South to North.
Our network focuses on supporting the civil society through the intelligent use of information and communication technologies.
On October 26 -28, more than 100 representatives of TechSoup Europe Partners gathered in Warsaw for 3 days of getting inspiration, peer to peer learning, exchanging knowledge and experience.
Discussing the future
Peer to peer learning
The workshop was a positive experience for me, as I felt the participants got inspired and impressed by the new forms of storytelling with data. They were engaged and enthusiastic, and that's the best for the trainer!
I was impressed by the positive engagement of all the partners as validation services are for some a new way of thinking in terms of a service for their markets. We walked away feeling very positive and will follow up and actively work with the network in Europe to convert the numerous prospects we came up with into customers and value to the sector.
I was happy about the discussion what social media can do beyond just marketing and about the findings how important a nonprofit community is.
I think we should use all possibilities to share our experiences and help each other to work successful. The workshops in Warsaw were the ideal format for sharing the knowledge about useful tools and learning.
The summit reminded me of the power of a network – we’re more than the sum of our parts and we can do so much more when to take the time to learn from each other. Meeting together allowed me to shortcut the relationship-building phase and I’m already collaborating with people I met.

Many thanks for the vent and the effort you put to make it a success. The most valuable thing for me was learning more about next steps in the strategy and learning what others are successfully doing in their countries.
It was a great chance to meet network partners and TechSoup Europe staff members and meet email faces. Thank you for a great event and great people!
