20 September 2016, London — Nominet Trust has appointed technology PR agency Wildfire to position the social tech investor as the authoritative voice on social technology and digital engagement.

Since 2009, Nominet Trust has invested more than £24 million into projects that harness technology to deliver real social change. Through its grant funding, partnerships and innovative campaigns, including the annual NT100, which showcases the very best examples of tech for good from around the world, Nominet Trust continues to mobilise digital approaches that drive a positive social impact.

Wildfire’s proactive approach will blend technology expertise with inspiring content to put the focus on the projects funded by Nominet Trust. The agency will also help to raise the profile of Nominet Trust’s NT100, which brings inspiring social tech from anywhere in the world under the global spotlight.

Vicki Hearn, director, Nominet Trust said: “Since our launch in 2009, Nominet Trust has pioneered the use of the internet and digital technology as a force for positive social change. As we make plans for the future, we remain committed to delivering our high-quality programmes and partnerships, together with a renewed enthusiasm for maximising our impact as a leading corporate foundation in partnership with our founder and funder, Nominet. Wildfire understood our vision from the outset and I’m confident that with the team’s industry insight, creative approach and established media relations they will be a valuable partner.”

Debby Penton, managing director, Wildfire said: “Technology continues to transform the way businesses operate but there still remains a huge opportunity to use it to address social challenges — from health and well-being to economic empowerment and sustainability. Our aim is to ensure that Nominet Trust sits at the heart of these conversations and ensure it’s in a position to encourage the use of technology to create solutions that will have a meaningful impact on the world around us.”
