The winners of the Vodafone Techstarter Award
The Vodafone Techstarter programme was launched in September 2018 with a clear mission – to find and support some of the most inspiring UK social innovators. Over 250 UK ventures entered to win, and since then, we’ve watched our Techstarters move from entrant to the Top 50, and finally, to the shortlist of 12 finalists.
On 7 February 2019, we were proud to announce the winners at an awards ceremony in London, UK. Our eight for-profit and not-for profit winners received a prize fund and the opportunity to pitch to potential investors, policymakers, entrepreneurs and technologists.
