We’re pleased to announce the launch of the new innovation initiative, Code for Victoria by the wonderful people at Code for Australia. The Royals are helping bring this to life, help find some incredible fellows and help government capitalise on the opportunities that digital transformation presents. Code for Australia and the Victorian Government’s Public Sector Innovation Fund are working together with the public to find new solutions to old problems.
In case you don’t know much about Code for Australia, jump over and have a look through. Alvaro and the guys there have created an organisation that’s making real headway into addressing public disengagement and distrust in government services. They have created a series of programs that use transformative, civic technology to a make a real difference to the way government operates.
The Royals are also involved in the academy which looks to cultivate bold ideas and connect with leaders in the public and private sector. It’s great to see innovation programs that aren’t necessarily focussed on startup incubation and raising VC. The Code for Australia guys have found a completely different route to making a difference for society as a whole.
