Previous Coaches

What NPOs did we help in the first batch?

The Asian Film Archive's (AFA) mission is to preserve, share and explore the film heritage of Asia. The AFA has been collecting film submissions using paper and email. This process is manual and it is difficult to keep track of the films or hold discussions within the team.

TechLadies created a web application where the public can submit a film and AFA staff can approve, reject, and leave comments about a film’s application. See live application

Engineers.SG is a not-for-profit community initiative created to help document the Singapore tech and startup scene. They needed additional features to enhance the usability of their existing website.

TechLadies built an email collection feature and events listing feature for them. See the work done by our graduates

Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics (HOME) assists migrant workers who are abused and/or exploited. HOME has outgrown the database that they are using to manage the cases they are handling. The old database isn’t customisable and they resorted to using paper forms to keep track of things.

TechLadies created a new case management database that can also generate reports that HOME needs. This app is used internally by staff at HOME. See a demo app by our graduates
