Eleanor Harry, Founder, HACE

With 160 million children in child labour globally, a number that is increasing, Eleanor has a visionary approach to tackling the issue; using data and AI to power the Child Labour Index, a solution to enable investors to identify child labour risk in their portfolio companies and engage effectively.

Eleanor’s mission: Data Changing Child Labour is to eradicate child labour in company supply chains. She has 13 years of experience in the field, with extensive commodity-specific work in the cotton, fishing and ready-made garment industries. Eleanor has contributed to international UN literature surrounding child labour including Delta 8.7’s ‘Markets’ Policy Guides and the recent Code 8.7 Symposium. She also sits on the UN’s UK Global Compact Child Labour Working Group.

 Georgia Gibson, CCO and Founder, Youni

Georgia is building a new way to experience uni. Youni is an aggregate app for uni extracurricular + social life. Youni takes advantage of today’s technology to build the generation of tomorrow.

Georgia believes that uni is sold as the BEST time of your life, but the stats on student mental health tell a very different and scary story, and no one is doing anything about it. The truth is uni isn't unified. Communities are fragmented and students, societies, teams, bands = all uni community organisers are stuck juggling multiple disconnected platforms that are either ill-equipped, overly-complicated or losing traction amongst your generation. So out of her student bedroom at Oxford uni, Youni was born.~
