Super Connect For Good Competition: An Overview

The Super Connect for Good Competition seeks to discover and super connect the best emerging tech startups and scale-ups creating positive social impact to enhance people’s lives through technology.

In 2020, we launched the competition in the UK and Ireland in partnership with Hays plc with over 50+ judges in 8 regions and 6 Innovation Streams. We were truly overwhelmed with the support we received for the competition from applicants, partners, judges, the press and the wider ecosystem with local to national press coverage, hundreds of applications and 40+ winners & runners-up.
