ChainChecked at Techfugees

Techfugees logoChainChecked participated in TechFugees, the event set up following the migrants’ crisis to mobilising the tech industry around the plight of the refugees and find solutions.

The event took place across two days and gathered some of the most creative, tech and entrepreneurial brains in London, and major third sector actors such as the UNHCR, Oxfam, Bethnal Green Ventures and Mercy Corps.

For two days we participated in conferences and in a hackathon, whose outcome will be seeing the light very soon. Many projects caught our attention, for example Geecycle, a mobile recycling service that enables people to send their old mobile phone to refugees who today need to be connected.
