Tech-For-Good

The Tech-For-Good initiative matches local charities and social enterprises with digital technology partners, to help the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector develop new innovative solutions to address challenges and issues they have identified.

Tech For Good is an organisation that wants to see technology used to tackle problems for society and the environment. This will enable better products and services to help meet the needs of people while protecting our planet.

Their mission is to grow a global movement for Tech For Good by increasing demands for entrepreneurs, civil society, corporates, funders, policy makers and consumers. AVC Studios had the chance to participate in this movement.

Our Role

AVC were on hand to lend their studio in Belfast. We supplied technical support and assistance to ensure the smooth flowing of another virtual event. Our Belfast team had a wonderful time working with all the participants in this project. We had the chance to view lots of different and innovative ideas while showing these organisations. We got to show what you can achieve with AVC Studios.
