Shoot to Skill: How Do I selected for Emerging and Enabling Technologies grant
NFC Helps Me Limited, a London-based social enterprise, has received funding for further development of its award-winning technology from Innovate UK, the UK’s Technology Strategy Board.
Their project, Shoot to Skill, was selected for funding through the Emerging and Enabling grant programme, designed to “help UK businesses broaden their innovation activities, disrupt existing markets and find new revenue sources,” according to the website of the awarding body.
NFC Helps Me Limited’s flagship app, How Do I?, was born from their founders’ experience working with young people with learning disabilities at the 6-times Outstanding Swiss Cottage School Development and Research Centre, an internationally renowned centre of educational excellence and expertise in specialist teaching.
“This funding will allow us to develop the tools we need to scale our business and test new markets, leading to greater degrees of independent living and working for more people,” says Taryl Law, Chief Operating Officer.
