In this episode of the Everyone Funding Startups podcast, we talked with Helen Keegan about an initiative by Vodafone called the Vodafone Foundation Smart Accessibility Awards. Apps developers should take special notice, there’s a €200 000 prize involved!

Apps for accessibility. The accessibility market is lucrative for developers

 

Listen to the podcast here(save as for mp3 version).

Helen is an expert in the mobile space, but only recently stumbled upon this hidden layer in the world. We talk about accessibility in general, why it’s invisible for many people and how it can be a truly lucrative market for apps developers and other entrepreneurs to keep in mind. For one, Helen says we like to think of it as a small niche, but it is actually a very large market. We talk about the workshops, some examples of products that have made a huge impact, but also about the mentality in the community and how to approach this market segment.

The London and Belfast workshops were held in September, here are links to the workshop pages. London workshop and Belfast workshop.
