// Shield in the cloud innovation challenge

The Shield in the Cloud Innovation Challenge is the first global anti-corruption innovation challenge. It is a joint venture with our partners Amazon Web Services and PeaceTech Lab. The challenge is aligned with the UN’s global sustainable development goals, one of which promotes just, peaceful and inclusive societies: “Corruption, bribery, theft and tax evasion cost some US $1.26 trillion for developing countries per year; this amount of money could be used to lift those who are living on less than $1.25 a day above $1.25 for at least six years” [UN’s global sustainable development goals] The challenge will select the most innovative start-ups, corporations, not-for-profits and governments working in cloud-based technology to promote transparency and accountability compliance worldwide.

How can I apply?
This is a global competition, and all organisations of all sizes who are using cloud-based technology to challenge corruption, can apply on F6s. To nominate another organisation or to give your application direct to us, please contact georgina.callander@ltc.global.
