Finalists Named In €1m Thinktech Competition

Shortlist includes Cybersmarties

21 Sep 2016 | 02.11 pm

Thinktech, a social enterprise competition funded by Google, has announced the 11 finalists who will compete for access to an award fund of up to €750,000 in grants as well as support and mentoring to further develop their social innovations.

The government has provided matched funding of €500,000 to a €500,000 donation by Google.org.

The short-listed finalists were chosen from 70 applications. They will present their proposals to an interview panel made up of business and social sector executives in Dublin this week.

 

This will be followed by a finalists’ workshop on September 29, with sessions from technology entrepreneur and investor Shane Deasy, technology venture capitalist Helen McBreen, and digital business experts from Google, Dublin.
