Social Tech Seed pre-application events 2015

Got an idea for a project that uses digital to address a social challenge but don’t know where to start?


  • Are you looking for funding to grow and develop your social tech venture beyond a digital prototype?
  • Interested in finding out about the types of ventures Nominet Trust invests in?

If so, then come and speak to us


Our Social Tech Seed investment programme will be open for applications on 17th March 2015. However, before you apply, why don’t you come and speak to us about your project?

We're hosting a series of pre-application events and web chats to give you the opportunity to find out more about what we look for in a social tech venture and ask us any questions you have about your project.

Web chats

Our online webinars will last about 90 minutes, in which time we will talk to you about the fund and give you a chance to ask your questions online.
