Humanitech was established in 2018 by Australian Red Cross, with support from founding partner Telstra Foundation to explore approaches to harness technology innovation to address the big and complex humanitarian problems.

In 2024 we welcomed QBE Foundation as a scaling partner to make a positive impact towards climate resilience in communities, from a local to global scale.

We connect Australian technologists, community leaders, corporate innovators, policymakers, and academics with the Red Cross Red Crescent humanitarian network to spark new ways of working with technology that benefit people and society.

Learn more about our new partnership with QBE Foundation, our work partnering with innovative start-ups through the Innovation program, our Humanity First approach, or our flagship event, the Humanitech Summit.
