Who We Are

GeekBeacon is an influencer-led 501c non-profit, a guiding light for geeks with a focus on social good, and that there is more that unites us rather than divides us.

How We Can Help:

Are you concerned about sponsoring or partnering with conferences while they transition to a digital platform? GeekBeacon has these issues in mind, as we offer a range of sponsorship packages that digitally cater to your values while providing the same benefits that were previously sought out with in-person events.

GeekBeacon builds relationships and helps connect solution providers with an Open Source and Technology driven community. Whether you are looking to:

  • build a business relationship
  • demo a new project or products
  • position yourself as a brand leader in your field

GeekBeacon can help bridge the connection to a community that is otherwise difficult to reach.

We welcome all interest and inquiries! Please contact us at partnerships@gbfest.org
