O2 Offers £250,000 Prize for Most Innovative Council

O2 is offering one local council the opportunity to win a prize worth £250,000 to help them tackle local community challenges through the use of tech.

The Local Government Digital Fund is calling on councils to submit tech ideas in three key areas – mobile working, connecting with citizens and collaborating in the workplace – that will drive positive change in the community or their organisation.

O2 is inviting local authorities to attend a kick-off event in Glasgow, London or Birmingham in October, where they will be able to meet O2s tech experts and take part in relevant workshops. The London event will take place tomorrow but all space have now been filled.

The winning idea will be judged at a Dragons Den-style pitch early next year and O2 will provide £250,00 worth of expertise, services and tech to help make the idea a reality.
