Here’s How to Give Back at SuiteWorld

Posted by Morgan St. Clair, Oracle NetSuite Social Impact Communications Manager

The Oracle NetSuite SuiteWorld conference isn’t just about growing your business. It’s also about giving back to our community. Here are two ways to give back at this year’s annual conference.


Hackathon 4Good

Hosted by Oracle NetSuite Social Impact, the 5th annual Hackathon 4Good on April 23rd in Las Vegas brings together more than 100 developers, customers and partners to develop innovative prototypes to address the challenges posed by nonprofit customers Abilities Centre and Girl Scouts of the USA. Teams will present their challenges to a panel of judges at the end of the day and compete for prizes.

“These may be the most interesting and evocative challenges we’ve ever had at the Hackathon 4Good,” said Peggy Duvette, Senior Director of Oracle NetSuite Social Impact.

The two participating organizations are enthusiastic about how NetSuite could be further “hacked” to address their unique uses.

“To be innovative as a charitable organization means finding fresh and collaborative approaches that increase our effectiveness. We’re thrilled to be a part of this year’s Hackathon 4Good,” said Matthew Shaw, Director of Revenue Development of the Abilities Centre, a community hub based in Ontario, Canada that delivers programs to enrich the quality of life and citizenship for people of all ages and abilities.

At the Girl Scouts of America, anticipation for Hackathon 4Good is building up.

“We attempted to create a challenge that truly challenges the contesting teams and results in interesting solutions,” explained Steve Welner, NetSuite Administer at Girl Scouts of USA.

Write a Card, Send a Smile

SuiteWorld attendees will be encouraged to stop by the nonprofit booth and participate in a charitable activity for Alex’s Lemonade Stand, a national childhood cancer foundation.

Attendees can take a break from the hustle and bustle of SuiteWorld to write notes to children living with cancer and learn about how the organization is changing the lives of children with cancer through impactful research and awareness.

#GiveBack2Alex

While at Alex’s Lemonade Stand on the expo floor, attendees will have the opportunity to post about the booth to social media with the hashtags #GiveBack2Alex and #SuiteWorld18. If we reach our goal of 3,000 social media shares, NetSuite will donate $10,000 to Alex’s Lemonade Stand.
