No. Although Startups Give Back focuses on getting startups involved, you don't have to work for one in order to participate. We welcome any business or individual that wants to make a difference.
This depends on the chapter you're interested in. Historically, for the San Francisco chapter, we organize at least one volunteering event a month. These events are typical on weekdays during the afternoon to accommodate people's schedules.

Currently, we have chapters in San Francisco, Silicon Valley, Santa Cruz, and Vancouver with plans of launching more around the U.S. and across the world.
The number of people you can sign up for a volunteering event depends on the nonprofit we're partnering with and how many people they can accommodate.
Some nonprofits can accommodate a large group while others only a handful.
We like to provide a mix of large and small volunteering events.
First and foremost, we avoid partnering with nonprofits that are political in nature. We believe in being inclusive, so we partner with nonprofits that anyone can get involved in.
We also look for nonprofits that have volunteering opportunities for groups of all sizes and who are well organized in order to provide a great experience for volunteers.
