Andy Powell, Eduserv Chief Technology Officer, has been appointed a judge of The Shield in the Cloud Innovation Challenge - the first global anti-corruption innovation challenge to reward start-ups, corporations and governments working in innovative technology aiming to promote transparency and accountability compliance worldwide.
Organised by C5 Accelerate, an international technology investment firm, the Challenge complies with the United Nations’ goal to promote ‘just, peaceful an inclusive’ societies, eliminate bribery, political and corporate corruption and make institutions and governments accountable and transparent.
“It was an honour to be invited to judge this exciting and innovative competition which highlights the increase in transparency and good governance that technology is bringing to business and the public sector,” says Andy, who’s fellow judges include Patrick Garver, formerly Executive Vice President and General Counsel for Barrick, Moira Andrews, Director, Praetor Consultants and Andre Pienaar, Founder, C5.
“Technology is playing a growing role in anti-corruption and it would be great to see some Challenge entries coming from the UK public sector to show our innovation on a global stage.”
Representing Eduserv, Andy was a winner of last year’s Dream Big Award, which recognises the best ideas for cloud innovation that have not yet been implemented.
