Pinga wins East London Innovators Award

Good news, we won another award! The East London Innovators competition identifies individuals and organisations who are working to make a tangible, positive difference within the East London community.

The initiative showcases the innovative work being done throughout the East London boroughs. The innovators include founders of cutting-edge tech and science applications which are disrupting industries, as well as leaders of non-profit social initiatives, and cultural and education projects – all working to meaningfully tackle and provide solutions to real-world problems.

The judges selected Pinga because of our mission to digitise all of the shops around you so you can get almost everything you need delivered in one hour with no cardboard boxes and zero CO2.

Check out some press coverage for the competition here, and our competition entry here.
