My name is Etienne de Bruin and I am the founder of New Technical Fund, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. I created the fund in 2019 because I want to see people who are stuck in broken economical and educational systems benefit from the love, empathy and profound problem solving skills of technology leaders.

I will be brutally honest and say that I don't have it all figured out. And more specifically, I don't know how to run a non-profit. I am used to creating or participating in startups aimed at being successful commercial entities by acquiring customers who pay for a product or service. I am used to metrics driven by mostly self serving business goals.

In 2013 I launched 7CTOs as a leadership coaching network for people in the Chief Technology Officer role. It has grown very successfully and to this day I am still filled with passion for our community.

It is this community that I want to see work together, pool their resources, gather their ideas on how to make a difference in people's lives.

Here's a video of me pontificating a little bit on what I see for New Technical Fund. It could change as we get to do more work, but this pretty much sums it up.

Feel free to join the site for updates from me and you're also welcome obviously to head over and make a donation. I love recurring donations!
