A Look Back On A Great October

October was an exciting month at Change Donations! We were accepted into the Prince’s Trust Enterprise Programme, completed Phase 1 of New Frontiers, and took home the Business Spirit Award for Best Early Stage Concept at the Responsible Innovation Summit! We were also one of 6 Irish startups chosen to participate in the Tangent Pioneers Programme in New York City!

Business Opportunity + Innovative Solution + Positive Impact

Earlier this month we had the opportunity to present at the second annual Responsible Innovation Summit. Not only did we have the opportunity to present alongside some truly amazing Social Enterprises, but we learned so much from the fantastic speakers at the Summit. From sustainable finance to Cultural Intelligence; so many important topics were covered and we’re happy to have had the chance to attend. We’re also thrilled to announce that after pitching earlier in the day, we took home the Business SPIRIT Award for Best Early Stage Concept; the first award of its kind in Ireland!

Tangent Pioneers

After winning the LaunchBox Summer Accelerator Programme in August, we were able to participate in the Tangent Pioneers programme which was a fantastic opportunity to begin to looking toward the future and gaining insight into the NYC startup community. Check out the video below for some highlights on the programme! You can also read more from one of our founders, Willie Conaghan, in this Think Business article.

We’re still hard at work creating the best new way for passionate donors to give to the causes they care about most! We have a lot of updates on the horizon that we can’t wait to share with you soon so stay tuned for more fantastic news!
