Startups and Innovation
One of the perks of being a world-class Acceleration Fund is that every day we get to work with incredible startups who are constantly innovating to create better, faster and simpler products for millions of people around the world.
And thanks to technology, they’re innovating faster than ever.
Services like Twitter allow startups to spread their message and engage with a global community quickly and easily – great for building a network of passionate fans!
But more than just facilitating communication between individuals, Twitter can be used in all sorts of innovative ways too…
For example, Lateral has created Twitter bots that use their own smart in-house API to suggest solutions to the world’s problems. And HOKO is making tweets smart by triggering specific actions within apps, using their mobile deep-linking technology (eg. allowing users to add a product to their shopping cart directly from Twitter).
#PoweredByTweets is a challenge that celebrates and encourages Twitter-powered design and invention. The best ideas around the UK will be showcased in an exhibition held during the London Design Festival in September 2015.
The competition presents a great opportunity for innovative startups to express their creativity by solving a problem or creating something visually appealing, with their work being shown at the UK’s most prestigious design festival.
We can’t wait to see what the UK’s tech and design community comes up with, and hope to see lots of submissions from startups around the country!
