Are you a democracy tech entrepreneur in Ukraine, Georgia, Moldova or Armenia?
Technology can play a major part in promoting and strengthening democracy. For that to happen we need new ideas and entrepreneurship.
Like Qela, a tool to organize democratic organizations. They use instruments like weighted voting based on your activity, and gamification to make it fun and competitive. Qela and co-founder Tamara Tachynska were a 2022 Tech Fellow.

The fellowship is in two phases
The democracy tech entrepreneur fellowship is divided into two phases.
In the first phase, the fellows attend bi-weekly collective masterclasses, where alongside traditional entrepreneurship classes, they learn ways to defend democracy and, also integrate more democratic principles and processes in their innovations and ventures. Bi-weekly mentor sessions supplement these lessons.
In phase two, the fellows are invited to Copenhagen, starting at the Copenhagen Democracy Summit to build strong networks with policymakers, democracy activists and the start-up ecosystem in Denmark.
