A contingent of 350 Sydney CEO's descended on the SCG to pitch cardboard shelters and sleep rough for one night to get a glimpse into homelessness and raise money to fight the predicament faced by more than 100,000 Australians.
CRN caught up with leaders in the local IT scene who took up the challenge.

"I got involved with the CEO Sleepout because it caught my attention as an opportunity to participate in a great cause, not to mention a nice way to reconnect with old peers. My initial involvement also coincided with an increasing focus on Lenovo’s local corporate and social responsibility initiative: to let philanthropy get personal. I’m returning for my fifth consecutive year as I find the CEO Sleepout fulfilling on a personal level. It’s a great initiative that the whole company gets involved with."
