Applications are now open for Google’s Global Impact Challenge which will give GBP500,000 to four non-profits which use technology for social good. Ten finalists will present their ideas to a judging panel on the 3rd June. Winners will also receive Chromebooks and technical assistance from Google staff. The public will be encouraged to donate to the ten finalists during the selection process.
Sir Stephen Bubb, CEO of Acevo, which is working with Google on the competition, says: “The Global Impact Challenge is a stunning way to highlight, celebrate, and develop cutting-edge work within the 21st century charitable sector. For Google to turn its entrepreneurial zeal towards social innovation, working with Acevo in such an open-spirited way, will result in much-needed resource and good news for hard-pressed charities. It’s thrilling to know how similar Google and Acevo’s approach is in celebrating innovation.”
The deadline for applications is 17th April.
