I hope you’re doing well. I wanted to share – the UNICEF Innovation Fund just launched a call for frontier technology startups addressing Child Online Safety. You can see more information about the call below, but please feel free to reach out with any questions or nominations of startups.
We are seeking open-source (or willing to be open-source) machine learning (ML), artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain or extended reality with an existing prototype. Up to USD $100,000 of equity-free seed investment from UNICEF’s Innovation Fund is available for companies building software solutions that respond to the four broad categories of digital risks to children: Content, Contact, Conduct and Contract Risks.
This link defines the areas we are particularly interested in investing in, together with the selection criteria and additional non-monetary benefits we provide.
It would be very helpful if you could forward this information to start-ups and colleagues within your network that may be interested in this opportunity and help us spread the word.
