TechPong, a Vancouver ping pong tournament with purpose, is back for round three. First launched in 2014, the event brings together Vancouver’s tech industry together for a night of fun to help raise money for charities that are making a difference in the local community.
TechPong takes place November 15 at the Imperial. The event invites Vancouver tech companies to raise a minimum of $1,500 for a charity of their choice that is making a difference in Vancouver.
Hosted by Chimp, a charity giving platform and Unbounce, a landing page and conversion marketing platform, TechPong will feature talent from Vancouver’s tech industry leaders, including BuildDirect, Microsoft, and BroadbandTV.
Last year’s TechPong raised upward of $72,000 for charities in support of the global refugee crisis.
“At Chimp, we believe that everyone wants something changed in the world and that they have something to give, and taking action on these core beliefs is what TechPong is all about,” said John Bromley, founder and CEO of Chimp.
“Techpong is a night where Vancouver’s best tech companies come together to build bonds that strengthen our community,” said Rick Perreault, CEO of Unbounce.
