Tech for Good Meetup

Hello everyone!

We have relaunched Social Innovation Camp Meetup as Tech for Good and are running our first event at Google Campus to talk about how we can use technology to solve some of our biggest social and environmental problems.

Our five brilliant lightening talks will be from:

• Bruno Taylor from Flip Yourself - The visual linkedin for young people

• Karen Partridge and Matthew Mc Stravick from Echo - Timebanking platform for SMEs

• Ewan Marshall, Adi Kasliwal and Matt Simmonds from Speakset - putting video calling onto TVs in carehomes

• Yodit Stanton from Atomic Data Labs - making personal sensor data open source and accessible

• Marc Zornes from Winnow - building hardware to help reduce food waste

We will also be launching the next round of applications for Bethnal Green Ventures, an accelerator for early stage tech ventures working on social and environmental challenges. So if you have an idea to use tech for good, come and find us!

There will be lightening talks, a chance to ask questions about Bethnal Green Ventures and beer...

See you there!

    I was very impressed by the quality of the pitches. So often at these types of events that pitches are terrible, but last night they seemed well prepared and ell rehearsed which was a refreshing change. Well done to you all. Unfortunately, I was not able to stay afterwards to chat to everyone, but hope to do so next time. PS - I'm hiring web developers, in particular those with strong experience in e-commerce, so if you, or anyone you know, are/is looking for a full time well paid gig, please email me here: [masked].

    Our business is about making a real and measurable extension to employees spending ability through responsible spending in a manner that is as easy to use understand as Wonga's payment slider.

    We are funded and coding the first stage of the MVP now. My co directors and I are seeking conversations with
    - Anti debt NGO's and Charities for insight and evaluation of tool
    - CSR and HR managers from large employers for insight into potential intranet tie ups (
    - A great front end native developer lead (flexible hours)
    - Beta testers to try out the tool and tells us what they think at each development stage

    The team is an Anglo American mid forties group of done it all ex bankers and serial entrepreneurs with Phd's and MBA's who want to make a difference and a viable business at the same time. Please do get in contact if you want to know more
