Mindapples gets UnLtd funding!

Good news from the Mindapples garden. I’m delighted to announce that Mindapples has received a Better Net Level 1 Award from UnLtd and the Nominet Trust!

The Better Net Awards are a new initiative to fund early-stage projects that use the internet to solve social, educational, health and environmental issues, and tackle issues like online safety and digital inclusion. Having previously been frustrated by the lack of funding available for web-based social innovations, I’m a big fan of this scheme, which reflects the growing understanding in funding circles that the internet can offer meaningful interventions in areas that really matter.

We’ll be using the money to build a new website with Unboxed Consulting – who have, by the way, been completely amazing – which should hopefully be launched in a couple of weeks. We’re also working on a Facebook app and a summer events campaign, including a very special summer exhibition on 16-17 July in Central London. Save the date, and watch this space for details…
