So typically we would treat ourselves to a little downtime after the busyness of Demo Day but given the exciting pace of the disability-tech space, this year we’re trading in the holiday for another season of Remarkable fun! On that note, we are super excited to announce not one but three exciting items for our 2021 calendar!
1 | Design-athon 2021 applications now open
Yep, that’s right! Although it only feels like yesterday, somehow a year has gone by since our 2020 Design-athon and our 2021 applications are now open!
This year we are inviting people from all over the world to take on one of three challenges and gain first-hand experience of how good design can change the lives of people with disability.

2 | Global launch of Inclusive Innovation Network
For more than 2 years Pete has been working behind the scenes to connect like-minded organisations across the globe who want to use technology for good and build a more inclusive world. It includes ecosystem enablers in Nairobi Kenya, London England, Bangalore India, Shenzhen China, Auckland New Zealand and Toronto Canada. This project has turned into something truly amazing and we are now preparing to globally launch the world’s first Inclusive Innovation Network!
Inclusive Innovation Network (more lovingly known as ‘+N’) is the global community of disability tech startups, innovators, ecosystem enablers and investors who shape future technologies that change the world of disability inclusion.
On the 18th of August 2021 (17th in North America) you are invited to attend the global launch of +N where you can learn more about the mission of this initiative and how to get involved. More information will be shared soon but you can stay up to date by subscribing to our newsletter.
3 | Remarkable Insights returns
We don’t need to convince you that there is a significant opportunity to leverage technological innovation to drive an inclusive future. But who is left behind as technology transforms the society around us? Remarkable Insights is about creating an inclusive society now.
Our monthly webinars called ‘Remarkable Insights’ will be returning in August. Until then you can watch our previous Insights conversations on our YouTube!
