As any non-technical founder knows, development work is expensive. It is easy enough for the Government to encourage everyone to innovate, but those without the skills or funds have no way to actually do it. Seeing this, the Telstra Foundation has launched a series of free innovation bootcamps designed for the not for profit sector.
on-profit social enterprise crowdfunding platform Chuffed.org has announced the closing of a $1.1 million seed funding round led by Blackbird Ventures, Bevan Clark, and the Telstra Foundation. As part of the funding, Niki Scevak, cofounder of Blackbird Ventures and Startmate, will join the Chuffed board.
