Eidos Challenge: Social Procurement

Thanks to everyone who attended the first (and sold-out) Eidos Gala Challenge Awards.

Congratulations StartSomeGood's Tom Dawkins and Red Hat Impact | Real Sustainability's Paul Howorth receiving the Eidos Challenge Award and the $25,000 contribution to your idea Lend for Good. 
Congratulations also to Unscrabble's Sujata Karandikar for winning the Gala award with the Unscrabble proposal.

For winning the Colin Power People's Choice Award, congratulations to Digital Storytellers' Natasha Akib and Armand Lespoir 'Stories for Impact' idea.

On behalf of Allan English's Family Foundation and EFF Lead Belinda Morrissey - well deserved all. We appreciate Belinda's enthusiasm and partnership throughout the whole process.

“I would like to add on behalf of the EFF just how thrilled we are with the calibre and professionalism of the applicants. There are some really great ideas in there, some of which we would like to continue discussions with even if they don’t win on the night. This has been a very rewarding process to have a highly engaging platform to source and tap into ideas which would normally not come through to us.” – Belinda Morrissey, English Family Foundation .
