Are you a start-up with a social purpose? 

For the third year in a row, Hays is partnering with start-up super connectors Empact Ventures to launch the Super Connect for Good competition, which aspires to discover and reward the emerging tech start-ups and scale-ups changing people’s lives for the better. 


The deadline to submit your application was 11pm on 7th August 2022​​​.

Our expert panel will select the top ten start-ups/scale-ups in each innovation area to compete in our virtual Top 100 Innovation Showcase event on 13th October 2022

Super Connect for Good Competition Global 2022

We’ve made our initiative global this year, widening entries in a bid to capture applications from across the UK and Ireland, Europe and Australia and New Zealand. We want to find tech start-ups and scale-ups creating positive change in any part of society including education, healthcare, local communities, public services and more. Innovation in the following areas is welcomed: 

  • AI for Good  
  • FinTech for Good  
  • ClimateTech 
  • EdTech  
  • MedTech  
  • HealthTech  
  • Smart Cities  
  • General Tech for Good (anything that doesn’t fit into the above categories)  

We’re also continuing with our Pre-Seed Challenge as well as an Impact Challenge – a focus on tackling a wider industry challenge that makes an aggregate social impact in society.
