By Lily

We are really excited to announce that four of the teams from our summer cohort have won the Social Tech for Social Change award from the Nominet Trust. Each of the winning teams will receive a £50,000 grant and ongoing support from the trust to develop their ventures into scalable, sustainable and socially impactful businesses. We are big believers in programmes like Social Tech for Social Change which provide support for ventures at a very early stage and which are crucial to develop a thriving Tech for Good ecosystem in the UK.
