Microsoft Store, NY - On April 27 & 28, Tribal Link Foundation partnered with Digital Custodians of Australia and Microsoft to present a weekend IT workshop that connected Indigenous Peoples with Information and Technology platforms and concepts such as bio-tech, block chain, artificial intelligence, cyber security, and augmented reality. The workshop was led by Sean Appoo and Ben Bowen, was held at the Microsoft Store in NYC and was attended by participants of Tribal Link Foundation’s Project Access Global Capacity Training Workshop for Indigenous Peoples and others attending the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues. .
Over the last ten years, the Veuve Clicquot New Generation Award have celebrated some of the most inspiring women in Australia. This year, founder and CEO of technology company Indigital, Mikaela Jade, took out the prestigious Veuve Clicquot New Generation Award (at an event hosted by Freida Pinto none-the-less!), which recognises the success and vision of up-and-coming entrepreneurial women – specifically those under 40 years old.
Jade was spurred to develop the first-of-its-kind app, Indigital Storytelling, after discovering she had Indigenous heritage at the age of 29. From there, she focused on bringing to life the cultural stories, places and artworks of the elders through the use of technology, effectively bridging the gap between generations.
The Veuve Clicquot New Generation Award given to Jade is a nod to the brand’s founder, Madame Clicquot, who took over the company’s reins at the tender age of 27, and went on to invent Rose Champagne blend in 1818 through the use of pioneering techniques that are still used today.
In May 2018, Jade was also awarded the Creative Visionary accolade and overall Judge’s Award at the InStyle and Audi Women Of Style awards.
