The crest of the Tech4Good wave in the UK crashed on to the beach of London Tech Week recently, valued at £2.3 billion in 2018 with a turnover of £732million. The following week we hosted TRANSPORT Smart Class, North of England 2019 in Leeds (part of the UK wide “Digital Leaders Week”) where CityMaaS Co-founder and CEO, Rene Perkins, reminded us that Technology is merely a tool that will increasingly be used to tackle the most meaningful problems in our society. Rene explained how combining this with user-centric design is key to successful products that can create positive social impact such as accessible travel – one of the major obstacles to independent lives. To tackle both online and real world location accessibility, we need to create a community that can help each other to overcome daily obstacles. CityMaaS is one of the UK’s leading start-ups in this ecosystem with the vision to provide personalised digital and travel experience using AI and crowd-sourced data.
