We support Entrepreneurs that use Technology to address Social Challenges
COM.UNITY runs the annual social tech challenge and encourage the brightest minds to compete in teams from over 25 universities & colleges in Israel.
Only single social challenge is being tackled via the competition in order to measure impact, excellence and find leading key performance indicators (KPI’s).
The goal is to tease out ideas & innovation while creating the next generation of social businesses, one that combines good and profit. Top teams will win an acceleration package and seed funding in order to make their ideas into living breathing social business.
Today, almost every moment there is a new revolutionary start-up in creation, but it is no surprise that in most cases these start ups are not about finding solutions to acute social problems. To that end, we founded COM.UNITY - an Israeli charity focusing on Social Tech empowerment. Our mission is to help
Our goal is to trigger more entrepreneurs to divert their skills to the social arena, and to assist those already active to fulfill their social and technological vision. We believe that just like in other cases, Israeli entrepreneurs have what it takes to come up with innovative social-tech ideas.
