Looking to connect with other start-ups and scale-ups? 

For the third year in a row, Hays has partnered with start-up super connectors Empact Ventures to create the Super Connect for Good competition, which aspires to discover and reward the emerging tech start-ups and scale-ups changing people’s lives for the better.

Join our virtual Top 100 Innovation Showcase event on 12th October 2022 to see our top ten start-ups/scale-ups in each innovation area go head-to-head in front of judges and our live virtual audiences. 

You’ll have the chance to connect with Tech for Good start-ups and scale-ups on the day, and each attendee will also be virtually connected to three companies/start-ups based on their interests within eight weeks of the event.

Super Connect for Good Competition Global 2022
We’ve made our initiative global this year, widening entries in a bid to capture applications from across the UK and Ireland, Europe and Australia and New Zealand. We want to find tech start-ups and scale-ups creating positive change in any part of society including education, healthcare, local communities, public services and more. Innovation in the following areas is welcomed:

•    AI for Good 
•    FinTech for Good 
•    ClimateTech
•    EdTech 
•    MedTech 
•    HealthTech 
•    Smart Cities 
•    General Tech for Good (anything that doesn’t fit into the above categories) 

We’re also continuing with our Pre-Seed Challenge as well as an Impact Challenge – a focus on tackling a wider industry challenge that makes an aggregate social impact in society.

Last year's competition saw applicants from a number of innovation streams, including AI for Good, EdTech, HealthTech, MedTech, Smart Cities (including IoT, 5G, Mobility), FinTech for Good, CleanTech and a general Tech for Good stream. Other categories included a Pre-Seed Challenge and an Industry Challenge in partnership with Siemens Mobility. Each application was carefully examined by a team of judges over four rounds, and we are now pleased to present the winners in our European Tech for Good report.
