In the wake of headlines on tech’s impact on humanity, the 2023 AbilityNet Tech4Good Awards were announced last night at the Institute of Physics in London and online. AbilityNet created the Awards over a decade ago and this year has seen a record numbers of entries from individuals, start-ups, charities and global tech giants from across the globe.
A global panel of judges had the unenviable job of selecting the winners from an incredible selection of entries. As well as receiving a trophy made from recycled tech, the winners will receive support and resources to help them on the next stage of their journey. That includes networking with other winners and finalists, crowdfunding programmes and mentorship from the industry leaders who make up the judging panel, and Awards network.
“We are surrounded by stories about the harm that digital technology can do. The Tech4Good Awards celebrate the amazing people and organisations who use tech to make the world a better place and solves today’s challenges.” – Mark Walker, Head of Marketing and Communications at AbilityNet.
