Social Tech Trust: COVID-19 Business Support & Start-up Funding Panel
Social Tech Trust is a charity that aims to redefine the relationship between tech and society. They provide the investment and support needed for social tech ventures to grow and scale their social impact.
If the amazing responses to this crisis have shown us anything is that tech has the potential to play a crucial role in addressing some of the greatest social challenges we face today.
“If we’re merely passive consumers of tech, we have no control over its direction and little influence on how it impacts our lives. It doesn’t have to be this way. We are the designers, creators and consumers of tech. It’s up to us to decide and shape what tech can do for us. Which is why our vision is a world where social transformation drives tech.” – Social Tech Trust
Over the last 10 years They’ve invested over £31m in almost 800 inspiring early stage initiatives that are using tech in innovative ways to address social challenges.
Their portfolio includes highly successful ventures developing products and services that have changed lives for the better.
