Humanitech backs seven innovative start-ups tackling humanity's toughest challenges with technology

From promoting reforestation through drone technology, to empowering undocumented people with digital identity, Humanitech has announced the successful applicants of its innovation program.

Seven start-ups will receive support to scale their impact through this year’s Humanitech Lab, an innovation program designed to support organisations addressing pressing social and humanitarian issues through technological innovation. 

The program is spearheaded by Humanitech, an initiative of Australian Red Cross, that is focused on harnessing the power of technology for good by putting humanity first.  

Thanks to funding from founding partner, Telstra Foundation, the program will provide successful organisations with $50,000 in funding alongside support to validate their approaches to ethical and inclusive technological design.  

The Humanitech Lab Innovation Program supports organisations developing and applying digital technology to solve humanitarian challenges to validate, pilot and scale solutions through provision of grant funding, capability building, and network development.
