NESTA Tech to Connect Challenge


The Tech to Connect Challenge is looking to help civil society develop their early stage ideas for tech that enables more or better interactions.

The aim of the Tech to Connect Challenge is to draw out and help develop ideas enabling civil society to combat social isolation using technology. This can be by developing new ways for people, or the organisation itself, to interact with others. By lending the right assistance to organisations that know the problem of isolation best, the hope is that technology can be targeted properly and delivered in a way that best reflects the needs of its users.

The Challenge prize will help finalists develop their ideas into working prototypes and plan for their implementation. The £1 million prize will be split into £500,000 of business support from Nesta Challenges with the other £500,000 being awarded as financial support. Find out more here.
