Cambridge, UK: We are excited to announce Beacon Family Services as the second winner of the tech Kickstarter 2.0 Competition. Based in the West Midlands, Beacon Family Services is a not-for-profit, therapeutic family support agency that works directly with children and/or their parents, carers, teachers, social workers, or other professionals, to support children’s emotional development.
Beacon Family Services provides evidence-based psychological therapies and training to build and strengthen children’s attachment relationships. They promote children’s social, emotional, and mental health needs.
We are delighted to support companies like Beacon Family Services, who are committed to making a positive impact on the communities around the world and the societies that we live in.. The tech kickstarter programme will provide dedicated app developer bandwidth to accelerate the development of seamless mobile app interfaces for them which will make transformative and preventative therapy techniques accessible to struggling families in the UK and beyond. With the amplified resources, Beacon Family Services can expedite improving their existing MVP App, moving it from tech readiness level 4 to tech readiness level 7 in a very short time.
At o2h technology, we understand the importance of innovative seed-stage companies in the healthtech sector and our goal is to provide them with the support they need to succeed in their digital transformation journey. We believe in working collaboratively with these very early-stage companies to help them overcome the barriers they may face when it comes to designing, building, and scaling their products which is why we launched the tech kickstarter competition.
Prashant Shah, CEO of o2h technology, said:
“We love working with seed-stage companies focused on human and planet health. We are a mission-driven organization and understand the importance technology plays in helping these seed-stage companies get their innovations off the ground.”
Charlotte Jenkins, Director of Beacon Family Services, expressed her gratitude for the support provided by the tech kickstarter competition and said:
“We are delighted to have been chosen as a winner of the tech kickstarter competition. The support offered will help us improve our existing MVP App, moving it from tech readiness level 4 to tech readiness level 7. With o2h’s support, we’d be able to make such a leap in such a short space of time. This award means that struggling families in the UK and beyond will be able to access our innovative, early, and preventative mental health help and support App much more quickly than we previously anticipated.”
About the tech kickstarter competition
The first wave of the tech kickstarter competition was a great success. We received applications from more than 25 seed/early-stage companies working on some really exciting and innovative ideas in the field of life science, tech/AI, and green innovation.
The tech kickstarter competition is designed to provide a boost of tech software/web development to seed-stage companies, who have secured some initial funding and are looking forward to building MVPs, Web or Mobile apps to kickstart their digital journeys or supercharge their existing MVPs by expanding their functionality with additional resources.
At o2h technology, we love working with innovative early-stage companies and helping them build tech products that can have an impact on human and planet health. Winners of this competition will receive a dedicated team of developers and end-to-end project management services to support their digital transformation journeys through all phases of application development including design, code, quality check, and implementation.
