Shield in the cloud innovation challenge

The Shield in the Cloud Innovation Challenge the global anti-corruption innovation competition is currently accepting applications for its second annual award, which was launched on 13th July 2018.

A joint venture with our partners Amazon Web Services, PeaceTech Lab and SAP NS2, the challenge aims to use the power of innovation to meet Goal 16 of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals: Peace, justice and strong institutions. Like the UN, we recognise that “Without peace, stability, human rights and effective governance, based on the rule of law – we cannot hope for sustainable development.” Innovation can only thrive when corruption is challenged.

The Shield in the Cloud Innovation Challenge will reward and recognise, all while greatly improving the scalability, of the leading and emerging startups who are harnessing the power of technology and innovation to fight corruption and improve transparency worldwide.

The competition will be judged by leading experts from across the cybersecurity, technology, government, banking, and investment community.
