Connect Our Kids Wins Innovate for Good Challenge

November 30, 2018
We’ve had an exciting week! We’ve been in Los Angeles at Upswell LA2018 where we were named the first-prize winner for the Innovate for Good Challenge award by Independent Sector, receiving a $20,000 cash prize and professional services from Accenture.

The Innovate for Good Challenge is an initiative that recognizes organizations catalyzing social change using new I.T. such as artificial intelligence or blockchain.

This week, we’ve been surrounded by energic changemakers, watched incredible speakers and attended several events over the past three days. Plus, CTO Travis Collins and Co-Founder/CFO Jessica Stern presented “A Permanent Loving Home for Every Foster Child: How People, Compassion, and Data Can Make It Happen.”

Thank you Accenture for believing in power of smart technology and our dedicated team. We are honored to have been chosen for such an award.

Help us reach our goal of raising an additional XX to create this smart technology tool.

“Upswell is an immersive, high-energy forum for turning ideas into action. It’s where you can forge new partnerships, address big challenges, exchange lessons learned, and explore best practices for advancing your mission.”
