A recent Guardian article shows how young pioneers are changing the world for the better. ‘Under-35s are leading the charge in the app market, accounting for over half of developers in the UK’. But these innovators aren’t just creating apps, they are positively influencing our society.

Cameron Graham, 21, is an economics and finance graduate who established Storii. His platform allows those in care setting to log life stories, care plans and even music and videos to help patients through reminiscence therapy. This app helps patients become happier and calmer and is now being used in care homes.

Founders4schools helps share inspiring stories. Role-model events connect students to business leaders who then tell their story and give young people advice and guidance. It takes teachers just 5 minutes to create an event, and inspire our future innovators.
