Zinc entrepreneurs searching for a heart of gold

Fifty tech entrepreneurs from around the world descended on Rochdale during October 2018, looking for big issues that needed big solutions. We were delighted when they asked if they could visit PossAbilities, and we hosted two groups of them, as part of a mission organised by Zinc, which aims to build new tech companies to solve the world’s toughest social issues.

Our visitors included entrepreneurs with backgrounds in psychology, architecture, technology and business from countries including Ukraine; Poland: France; Israel and the UK.

We spent time talking about our work with vulnerable adults and exploring ways in which technology and artificial intelligence can help us to overcome some of our biggest issues.

The entrepreneurs have returned to their London base to work out which ideas they would like to develop further, so we look forward to working with them to create some tech based alchemy.
