Pre-acceleration programme Pioneers.io, based in Austria, supports Techfugees’ mission to coordinate the international tech community responses to the needs of refugees.

The  platform positioned at the intersection of entrepreneurship and innovative future technologies, Pioneers, has spontaneously included an option to donate to Techfugees as part of a recent rewards programme. The vast majority of entrepreneurs participating in their programme decided to donate to Techfugees.

These donations follow a significant contribution made by the Pioneers team itself to Techfugees earlier this year.

A special thanks to the Pioneers team, their entrepreneurs and our global strategic partners, Schibsted, who enable us to continue to carry out the work we do.

These donations enable Techfugees to roll out a larger series of events closer to the refugee hotspots and refugee host countries, including more refugees to participate in them. It also allows us to move into the next phase of development for Basefugees, a curated directory of refugee tech related projects.

If you would like to know more about the next event and are interested in getting involved, please subscribe to our newsletter and/or contact the local Techfugees chapter closest to where you live to volunteer your time.
