OpenDoor was our accelerator that supported products, services or projects that can make work more inclusive.
We’re helping teams inside and outside of organisations develop their solution, find a route to market and reach a wider audience. For our first OpenDoor programme, which we delivered in 2019, our focus was on making work more inclusive for everyone.
OUR CHALLENGE AREAS FOR COHORT ONE
How can we create physical workplaces, policies, interview practices or cultures that attract a truly diverse talent pool?
How can innovation enable everyone to pursue meaningful work throughout their lives, and whatever their circumstances?
How can we make it easier for people from under-represented groups to start a business, get the funding they need to scale and overcome conscious or unconscious bias?
Dom Hyams, communications director at Grid Smarter Cities, joined our OpenDoor accelerator to develop and scale ADAPT (Assistance for Disabled Air Passenger Travel): an app aimed at making it easier for disabled people to navigate through airports.
