We have some funding available for people who have their own projects to create digital tools/services with social impact. Including open data/knowledge-related work!
I work for Outlandish, which is a co-operative of developers and designers. We’re hoping to build something like a network of like-minded practitioners that would make it easier to make a living while working on socially relevant technology. We’re trying out a small funding programme both to assist good projects, and also as a community-building exercise.
We’re able to offer grants of £5,000 for teams or individuals in early stages of a project.
We’re launching the project on March 15th with an informal event in London, at Newspeak House. We’d love to see you there if you are interested in the funding or collaboration in this area.
