Tech for Good Dublin is going green for September, with an event dedicated to stories of positive (tech-enabled) environmental impact.  Please book your ticket now on EventBrite to be sure of a place: We have some great speakers lined up including: Emma Walsh, the Chief Operating Officer of FoodCloud FoodCloud is a social enterprise that connects businesses with surplus food to charities who use the food. Since it’s beginnings as a social start-up just 4 years ago, FoodCloud has grown to be a major Irish success story since. Their technology platform has played a key role in enabling this growth. We look forward to hearing from Emma about the story of FoodCloud. Aisling Byrne, Co-Founder and CEO at The Nu Wardrobe The New Wardrobe is bringing the sharing economy to fashion by creating an online wardrobe for people to share and swap their clothes with friends and other Nu users. Say goodbye to the days of buy, wear, throw away, and the stress of hunting down pieces to borrow from your friends. Come along to find out why ‘You don’t need 50 dresses, you just need 1 dress and 50 friends.’ Rahil Nazir, Chief Technology Officer at Thriftify Thriftify is an online platform that automatically values and sells books online. Every year millions of books are donated to charity shops, but finding out how much these books are worth can be a real challenge for charities. Rahil will explain how the Thriftify platform uses live information from online retailers to automatically value, price and upload books for sale, enabling charities across the UK and Ireland to increase their earnings. Join us to hear how technology has helped these great organisations to reduce waste and increase the value of reusing and recycling. There will be time after the speakers for questions and discussion with free tea and coffee for attendees.
