2017 Driving Digital Challenge

Driving Digital Challenge 2017

Micro businesses[1] with innovative digital product are invited to enter the Driving Digital Challenge. The winner will present at the Gala Dinner on 16 October 2017.

Entrants must show how their digital product or service:

  • Solves a problem in an innovative way
  • Brings value to the end user
  • Enables greater independence and quality of life

Challenge Background

TSA are a well-established and recognised leader in the area of Technology Enabled Care. This year we want to continue our search for new organisations and innovative approaches into the marketplace and are aiming to widen their focus to the broader Technology Enabled Care (TEC) agenda.

The Challenge

Please send us a video-pitch of up to 3 minutes by emailing a link to awards@TSA-Voice.org.uk. Video files can also be sent to us using https://www.wetransfer.com.

Your video submission must explain the problem you are addressing and how your product or service aims to solve this problem, what impact has it had to date and how much traction it has generated.

Please include the following:

  • Quick overview of the product or service you are selling
  • What problem it solves & why it is innovative
  • The target audience for your product
  • How it brings value to the end user (including evidence of impact)
  • How it enables greater independence and quality of life
  • Why it is better than any other current approach to solving this problem
  • Why it is better than other products/services currently on the market

How you choose to present this in your video is completely up to you, but it is important that we can clearly understand what you are saying. We will not consider videos with poor audio quality.

Video entries may be shared publicly to promote your products and the ITEC conference.
