We are thrilled to announce that Buengo has been chosen to represent the United Kingdom in the United Nations-sponsored World Summit Awards!
UPDATE: Buengo is a finalist! Winners will be announced at the end of November – watch this space!
The World Summit Awards (WSA) are a global initiative, aiming to celebrate digital innovation making a positive impact on society. Our innovative app for good has been nominated to represent the UK in the Business & Commerce sector, and will now be judged against the nominees from countries all over the world.
Over 400 international projects will be judged in the World Summit Awards, in a variety of categories. The aim of the awards is to really show off the richness and diversity of digital innovation which is making a difference all over the world. Buengo and other projects will be judged on their content, functionality, design, technology, innovation, and impact as well as their global United Nations value.
This year’s WSA nominees have been selected by a panel of experts from over 180 UN member states, so Buengo’s nomination is already a huge accomplishment that really highlights our value as a social impact app and business. Judged by a panel of international experts, Buengo will now go through a tough selection process before the winner is announced. Previous UK winners include BBC OneMusic, The Guardian and Marks & Spencer mobile commerce – we’re honoured to be in such esteemed company!
Fela Hughes, Co-founder and CEO of Buengo said of the nomination:
“Buengo has been nominated for a WSA! Buengo aims to make a difference, and we’re thrilled that we have been chosen as the best digital solution for the United Kingdom. We’re looking forward to realising the app’s full potential and have some exciting new features in the pipeline which will empower more people to do something good for their community!”
Good luck to all nominees!
