First Principles Forum

About

The First Principles Forum convenes founders, early employees, and investors in the technology sector with access to resources from recent IPOs or company acquisitions to advance their thinking on impact and philanthropy. This gathering and community provide opportunities to support and challenge the next generation of philanthropic leaders to think consciously about the impact they can have, from the outset of their wealth accumulation.

Save the Date:  2021 First Principles Forum will be held on Friday, July 16. 

With the persistent challenges of the coronavirus pandemic, systemic racism, economic inequities, political insecurities, and climate change, it seems more vital now than ever that we learn more about giving and impact. That’s why we will be bringing our community back together again on July 16 for the 2021 First Principles Forum.  The Forum will highlight a few keynote speakers, but will be centered on facilitated small group discussions to share ideas and practical advice from experts and peers. 

If you are new to the community, you can request to join here. Attendance is by invitation only.

Interested in joining the First Principles Community? Is this you?

  • The technology company where I work recently went public or was acquired, and I now have new and increased personal resources.
  • I want to think consciously about the impact I can have with these, and all of my resources.
  • I might give a meaningful portion of my wealth in service of impact, and I am looking for a group of peers to help narrow my focus and inspire me to take further action.
