We opened up our Winter 2015 Call for Ideas yesterday at the Tech for Good Meetup in London. Once again we’re looking for 10 great teams with ideas to use technology to solve important problems in health, education or sustainability. We’ll invest £15,000 into your venture, give you free office space in (very) Central London and a programme of support .
We’ve come a long way from the first BGV in the Winter of 2010/11. Back then, we kicked off on a Saturday because that was when we could get a room and cooked vegetable lasagne for about 30 people. Both the catering and the support we offer is a lot more professional these days but the ethos is still the same. We’re still trying to build a community of talented people who want to use technology to change the world.
If you’ve got an idea and a team that you feel could do with our support, applications are now open. We’re very happy to talk to you before you apply to give feedback or tell you whether it’s the kind of thing we’re looking for. Contact details are on the application page. Good luck!
