About

A startup like no other Beam is the world’s first crowdfunding platform that helps people from disadvantaged backgrounds to train up and get into work. Funded by the Mayor of London, Nesta and some of the UK's top tech entrepreneurs, Beam has rapidly proven a powerful new model in helping disadvantaged people to train and get into rewarding work. Beam is currently focused on helping homeless people living in hostels. One of the UK's top "Tech for Goods" and social enterprises, Beam has been covered widely including by the BBC, The Times, The FT, The Independent, Evening Standard, Sky, Time Out and others and was named by The Guardian as one of the most important social innovations of 2018.
