1 IN 5 AUSTRALIANS LIVE WITH A DISABILITY
(more than 1.3 billion globally)
The rapidly accelerating rate of technological innovation has tremendous potential to reduce barriers for people with disability and become a powerful driver of inclusion.
But despite advances in technology, social reform & impact investment, they continue to face significant barriers to participation in everyday life.
“People with disability are severely under-represented in reaping the benefits of digital technologies as both producers and consumers.”
THE TIME IS NOW
Right now there is significant opportunity to leverage technological innovation to drive an inclusive future.
Remarkable harnesses technology to build social and economic inclusion of people with disability. We accelerate disability-tech startups through our 14-week accelerator program. And initiate innovation through events like Enabled by Design-athon.
