Accelerator for ChangemakersBe the ChangeJoin the Mutiny


Mutiny 2019 Changemaking Winners!

Mutiny is a cutting-edge accelerator program for early-stage teams with impactful ideas. It is a movement of ambitious, forward-thinking individuals, all working towards either scalable global or significant local impact. You have a business idea with changemaking potential – Mutiny provides you with the right skills, contacts, and environment to efficiently put it into action and make that change.

This year, after an intensive two-month accelerator phase, our impact-seeking teams were ready to take on the Showcase and gave the last pitches in front of the audience, guest speakers, and the jury. The night was filled with curiosity, bold solutions, and amazement. The dense Ääniwalli unraveled on Thursday May 16th! 

We are pleased to announce Semsai Grievance Technologies as our Mutiny-winner 2019! With their idea for SMS-based mechanisms, which use artificial intelligence to produce reliable and timely data directly from workers in your global supply chain, this team presented a complete package. The judges were impressed.

The winning team, formerly known as Fairchain, was picked out of all passionate teams, which made it through Mutiny’s application process and refined their idea and skills in Mutiny – Accelerator for Changemakers. Congratulations!

We also want to congratulate 2nd and 3rd place winners Riot Innovations and ThrashCam. Same goes for all of the teams that participated; we had many outstanding contestants. Our only regret is that there can only be one winner. Every team that participated got valuable experience for their future endeavors.
