AID:Tech


United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Irela

We started AIDTech to offer better transparency in international aid and support services for refugees migrants and those in need. We want to offer a solution to the problem of financial inclusion for those who are currently excluded from public financial and digital services because they are unbanked or undocumented. Using blockchain based technology allows for direct entitlements and complete traceability and transparency. The problem we are solving is firstly that of financial inclusion. Once a beneficiary is registered on our platform via our partners such as the Red Cross the UN or governmental welfare depts they gain a access to a diverse variety of services. Through access to an accredited personal profile beneficiary can lay claim to services such as capital insurance pensions donations and remittances. This serves as the basis towards more equitable basic human rights and access. Using the example of a smallholding farmer by establishing a legal identity (SDG 16.9) documented on the blockchain their profile serves to host entitlements such as land registry records insurance and remittances. In 10 years time we want to see hundreds of millions of users transacting on our platform making the most of services made available via our blockchain solution.

Founded by a tech savvy couple living in Milan Italy and since 2011 by their son Mario. While their baby initially seemed healthy when he was just 10 days old he was diagnosed as having had a perinatal stroke in the right side of his brain. The stroke left him unable to move the left side of his body. The D Angelos have used mirror neuron rehabilitation to help Mario regain movement. Today Mario is 6 years old and has greatly improved motion. FightTheStroke.org is now a social enterprise aimed to gather and share the experiences of families who ve been affected by all types of juvenile strokes. The social movement wants to open up a dialogue about the devastating effects of strokes at the young age and to advocate for young stroke survivors and their caregivers. This issue is important to the founders for a simple reason because they've been through it themselves with their son Mario. Together as a family and thanks to the support of a very proactive community they re promoting the awareness of this story at events like TED Global (Edimburgh Scotland June 2013) Ciudad de las Ideas (Puebla Mexico November 2013) Doctors 2.0 (Paris France June 2014).

Solu


Philippines

We re using technology to optimize the flow of waste from generation to treatment. Solu re configures the waste collection process by attaching a material monetary value to segregated waste to incentivize citizens to segregate and then sell their waste. Solu improves the value of waste at a grass roots level by a factor of between five and eight (material dependent). Solu is an asset lite technology platform that connects all actors within the waste management sector in a coherent structure from street sweepers to industrial waste to energy facilities. Solu utilizes existing infrastructure in the form of junk shops and MRFs to act as aggregators of segregated materials and these actors are guaranteed a minimum of a 15% margin on all materials that they buy a vast increase on their current expected margins. Once capacity is close to full an auction begins for the private sector who are able to bid on a certain volume of segregated at source materials. If there is no private sector demand then the relevant LGU is mandated to purchase the materials at a pre agreed upon price per unit of material. This is a cheaper and much more efficient of method of waste collection for LGUs (or the LGUs outsourced waste haulage partner) than the typical door to door street to street methodology currently deployed we can demonstrate our analysis on request.So we increase earnings potential for the vulnerable in society we save government money we decrease the negative environmental effect that waste (in the Phillipines in particular) causes and we increase the viability of waste degradation technologies such as 'to energy' biogas recycling and repurposing plants. All through our proprietary process improving technology that employs machine learning and big data analysis to optimise our dynamic and adaptive pricing algorithm and our innovative peer to peer payment network. We're currently in deep conversations with 4 municipalities here in Metro Manila to trial Solu at the end of August and we're in conversation with the ADB to be a part of four upcoming urban renewal projects here in the Philippines beginning late Autumn. We've already had expressions of interest from municipalities outside of Metro Manila and have been invited to operate in other nations in South Asia.
