The deadline to vote in the DigitalAgenda Impact Awards People’s Choice vote is fast approaching, with only one week left to have your say on which finalist will claim the coveted prize.
From online games to explain cancer to children, to industrial waste-management data analytics, the 36 finalists are an incredibly varied cohort who demonstrate the strength of UK tech for good across all sectors.
Finalists include digital identity platform Yoti, code-teaching programme Teens in AI, and peer-to-peer financial support app Turn2Us. There can only be one winner of the People’s Choice vote, with the winner announced at the DigitalAgenda Summit & Impact Awards event on the 5th of March.
Last year’s People’s Choice winner was Sharing Economy category finalist BorrowMyDoggy, a platform connecting dog owners with trusted local dog sitters and walkers across the UK to share the care of dogs. Below you can see Founder and CEO Rikke Rosenlund collecting the award.
The event is an engaging mix of awards ceremony and conference, with lots of interesting on-stage content throughout the afternoon. Amongst the speakers is Professor Sue Black OBE, who is also in the running for an award in the Employment & Skills category with her project TechUP Women, a programme of tech training courses for women in the Midlands. Also speaking is Kajal Odedra, UK Director of online petition site Change.org; Louise Wilson, Co-Founder of impact investing platform Abundance; and DCMS Minister for Digital & Broadband Matt Warman MP.
