GeekCause was founded in 2017 by Atiba, a Nashville-based technology consulting firm, as a way for their employees to lend their skills to local nonprofits. With 130 volunteers and eight projects complete, Atiba saw an opportunity to expand the program’s reach through a partnership with Hands On Nashville. Thanks to generous support from The Frist Foundation, GeekCause now has a home at HON, where we hope to continue the good work for great causes in our community.
