Do you have a solution?

Nesta’s Rapid Recovery Challenge, now open for applications, will find and support tools and services that improve access to jobs and money for people across the UK, focussing on those hardest hit by the economic shock resulting from COVID-19.

 Throughout the 12-month Challenge, innovators will be supported to develop and scale their solutions and expand their reach and impact.

 Challenge prizes like Rapid Recovery are innovation competitions that fund and encourage diverse ideas; Nesta is looking for a wide range of organisations to apply.

 If you have an idea or solution, they want to hear from you. Take a look at the Challenge website for all eligibility criteria and necessary information to apply.

 The Challenge is funded by Nesta, in partnership with JPMorgan Chase Foundation and Money and Pensions Service.

 Applications are open from September 14th and close 12:00 GMT (midday) October 26th.
