We are thrilled to announce that the Social Tech Trust has been shortlisted for the prestigious Catalyst 2030 Awards in the Leaders in Trust category. This remarkable recognition reflects our unwavering commitment to leveraging technology for social transformation and aligning with the Sustainable Development Goals. 


About the Catalyst 2030 Awards 

Launched at the World Economic Forum in January 2020, Catalyst 2030 is a rapidly growing global movement comprised of over 3,600 proven social innovators and 2010 member organisations, active in 124 countries and directly impacting an estimated one billion people. The movement unites social entrepreneurs and innovators from all sectors who share a common goal—advancing sustainable development through innovative, community-led approaches. 

The Catalyst 2030 Awards celebrate those who champion transformational change by recognising funding allies that illuminate innovative practices. These awards honour private and public sector entities that boldly shift how society addresses its challenges, prioritising support for community-led solutions and championing the efforts of local social innovators through collaborative partnerships.  


Transforming Lives Through Technology 

At Social Tech Trust, our dedication goes beyond change; we envision a future where technology isn’t just a tool for convenience but a lever for equality – where access to healthcare, financial and economic well-being, and climate solutions aren’t privileges but universal truths available for everyone.  

We invest in companies at the forefront of furthering equality, keenly aware that technology has the power to dismantle barriers and forge paths to a more equitable world. Through our accelerator programmes, partnerships and investments, we have helped identify and scale hundreds of tech companies that are creating social change and positively impacting people’s lives. We champion the use of tech to further equality, providing fertile ground for companies not only to succeed but to redefine success in terms of social impact and systemic change.  

By listening to founders and understanding their vision, we become more than investors—we become allies in pursuing transformative social change. We are challenging existing approaches that hold back innovation, addressing the lack of aligned investment and providing alternative models that gives ventures the optionality they need to grow sustainably. Our engagement goes beyond financing—we share our learning and insights to inspire others and amplify the effect of our work. Our programs enable startups to create sustainable solutions with a far-reaching impact, always guided by the needs and well-being of the communities they serve.
