Spending an evening with UK’s leading lights in digital transformation

On 23 October 2017 over 30 organisations from the private, public and third sector gathered in London for the Digital Challenge Award ceremony. These were the shortlisted finalists that have received recognition for their role in facilitating digital transformation in different areas of UK economy. One of the finalists was #ask. Represented by 21c Consultancy, a partner managing UK pilot, #ask was competing with four other initiatives for Innovative Projects Award. In this category, two solutions that appealed most to the judges were Fuse Digital Accelerator for Nonprofits (1st place) and JourneyPlus (2nd place). Although #ask did not win, 21c managed to showcase the project during a networking session that followed the ceremony. Follow @ask_youth_uk to learn about our past and forthcoming activities!
