Google Awards Millions to Groups Harnessing Technology For Change

Published

Australia’s top not for profits and social enterprises are celebrating after winning millions of dollars in prize money for their use of technology to make a social difference.

Google divided $5.5 million between finalists and winners of its 2018 Impact Challenge, with groups pitching their ideas to a panel of judges featuring Professor Alan Finkel AO and Professor Tom Calma.

The winning ideas ranged from an app helping people with disability find a suitable carer, databases assisting NFPs to track impact, an anxiety reducing app, to a humanitarian ticketing platform.

The four winners – Xceptional, Humanitix, Orange Sky Laundry and Hireup – each received a $1 million grant, as well as training through a Google partnership, while each of the remaining finalists were awarded $250,000.
