Details

This event is for anyone with an idea or venture that uses tech to improve the prospects and power of workers.

"The opportunity for tech-led, pro-worker innovation are many, but there are just too few people pursuing this agenda. That's what we want to change." - Gavin Kelly, CEO Resolution Trust

We'll be discussing the funding landscape for WorkerTech ventures and we'll hear from a range of funders and entrepreneurs, including:
The RSA Future Work Centre
Ufi Charitable Trust
Bethnal Green Ventures
Organise

For this event we want to specifically bring together people who are directly working on and developing WorkerTech solutions. For example, these could be tools that help workers organise and increase bargaining power, boost skills and pay, or reduce job insecurity.

There's also an opportunity to make a community announcement, so get in touch with us via Meetup messages or email at [masked].
