Pennies is pleased to be taking part in the Government’s UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) mission to South East Asia this July, sharing its unique micro-donation movement with the region’s emerging digital payments markets.
As part of the delegation, led by Prime Minister David Cameron, Pennies CEO Alison Hutchinson will be demonstrating how the Pennies ‘digital ecosystem’ unlocks crucial funding for charities and the communities they support: showcasing the power of new technology as a force for social good.
In just five years, Pennies has brought together diverse organisations from across retail, technology and financial services to help boost the efficiency of the UK’s third sector. By creating an additional, sustainable source of funds for charities through their ‘digital charity box’, Pennies has become a key player offering innovative solutions through the UK’s growing FinTech industry.
Pennies is uniquely placed to provide insight to businesses in South East Asia – across digital, retail and payments sectors – about how embracing innovation can benefit their own communities.
Prime Minster David Cameron said:
“British organisations like Pennies are flying the flag and unlocking the economic potential of the fast growing economies of South East Asia. I’m delighted that they have joined me on my first trade mission of this government and I hope that we can work together to create jobs and growth for the UK.”
