TechSoup Global Welcomes Todd Khozein to its Board of Directors
Among the initiatives Todd has helped to develop are LAUNCH (a collaboration with the U.S. Department of State, NASA, USAID, and Nike), Code4Country (Russian and American programmers united to address transparency in government), and Random Hacks of Kindness (in collaboration with Google, Microsoft, Yahoo!, HP, NASA, and The World Bank).
“Random Hacks of Kindness has become the leader in the rapidly emerging arena of engaging hackers for social change,” says Daniel Ben-Horin, TechSoup Global’s founder and co-CEO. “Todd understands that hackers and social sector organizations have to forge a new kind of partnership if we are to achieve real change. We look forward to his guidance as we try to meaningfully represent the social sector in this dialogue.”

This board plays a critical role in leading TechSoup Global as we enter our 25th year. “We live in a time in which the most challenging problems facing our society and environment are becoming increasingly interlinked, but we also live in a world that has largely organized itself in silos of geography, mission, and core competence” Todd says. “TechSoup Global provides services at the intersection of these silos -- it stands poised to make an essential contribution to both understanding these challenges and playing a critical role in discovering their solutions.”
