Bringing together tech & talent to end homelessness
techUK proud to be partners of the newly launched Venture Studio from Crisis which will invest in, support, and create ventures to end homelessness.
Crisis, the UK national charity for homeless people, yesterday launched the Venture Studio which will invest in, support, and create ventures to end homelessness. The aim is to bring together their expertise with the talent, technology, and agility of startups to end homelessness for good.
The launch blog states that alongside forward-thinking policies we need innovative new solutions to prevent homelessness from happening in the first place and to tackle its consequences.
The Venture Studio will provide access to subject expertise, a test bed with experts-by-experience, funding, and a range of technical, business, and product support to accelerate businesses that are driven to end homelessness.
How can techUK help?
The Venture Studio are looking for partners in industry to share technical expertise and resources to help scale ventures.
techUK is delighted to be a partner of the new Venture Studio and help connect up the tech for good and local public services ecosystem to support the mission to end homelessness for good.
This month we are delighted to be hosting a partnering and networking event with the Crisis Venture Studio team that will help connect companies small and large committed to preventing homelessness. More details of this event will be posted on the techUK website.
