Tech-for-good projects receive £67k boost – following virtual pitches and online showcases facilitated by AVC Studios in Belfast
The Foundation’s Techies in Residence programme awarded almost £70,000 seed funding to five local projects following a virtual pitch and online showcase on Thursday 20th May at the AVC Studios in Belfast.
With seven projects taking part in the showcase, five received a financial boost of £12,000 each to invest in the further development of their tech project, while the remaining two each received £3,500 development grants.
The tech-for-good initiative matches local charities and social enterprises with digital technology partners, to help the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector develop new innovative solutions to address challenges and issues they have identified.
AVC were on hand to lend their studio, technical support and assistance to insure the smooth flowing of another virtual event.
