Earlier today, The Federation announced that the Co-op Foundation, has been given £700,000 of funding from Omidyar Network, an organisation that invests in entrepreneurs committed to advancing social good.
At The Federation, Co-op Digital already works alongside organisations and individuals who share our Co-op values but thanks to the funding, there are now 60 workspaces that like-minded tech entrepreneurs can apply for.
The funding will also support Federation’s events programme. Many of the events will be themed around how we create a more inclusive digital economy in the UK. Talks and workshops will look at the impact of technology on broader social issues such as loneliness, inclusive participation and the right to privacy.
