Last week we were invited to a showcase event of the 8200 Impact acceleration program, witnessing how innovation can make the world a better place.
8200 Impact is the first acceleration program in Israel for social technology (social impact) startups, that aim to solve significant social problems through technology in a wide spectrum of fields.
In the 5th cycle of this program, which is being managed by Neta-Li Meiri, a member of our ME 2.0 Palestinian-Israeli Young Business Leaders Forum, all startups focused on different solutions for people with disabilities!
Amazing what comes out if you connect the world of "need knowers" with innovators and smart technologies!! Check out details about the social impact start ups here: https://www.8200impact.com/alumni.
These are good examples how technological innovation can bring about more freedom and independence and can create new opportunities for disadvantaged population groups.
