Starting Change podcast episode five: How to build a life-changing app
Thursday, August 25, 2016/
In the age of digital disruption, savvy social change-makers are collaborating with the tech world to create revolutionary solutions.
There are now apps to help you find brands that perform well on labour rights, connect with stories of traditional owners and even save children from sex trafficking.
So what does it take to build a life-changing app?
In this episode, we speak with technology expert Mike Ebinum to uncover the process of creating great tech solutions.
Ebinum’s startup Seed Digital specialises in app and web development.
“Even though we build a lot of apps, we have to almost stop people from trying to build apps right from the get-go,” Ebinum tells StartupSmart.
“It’s always good to open up your eyes and your mind to different uses of technology.”
