snaildaySweden – We last reported on Snailday and its founder Anton Håkanson in December with the news that Anton had become a  Change Leader in the Reach for Change program.

Reach for Change is an international program that supports entrepreneurs with companies that support children, which is what Snailday do. The Reach for Change website states:

 ‘is a person who has passed Reach for Change’s tough selection process and been selected to participate in our Incubator. Common to all our Change Leaders is that they work with children’s and young people’s rights.’

Snailday is a company that consists of a small but dedicated team of designers and developers who have created  a digital calendar for people with autism.

In Sweden there were three winners, one of whom was Anton. He will 0w receive both funding and advice from individuals within the business world to help Snailday on their journey to create their digital calendar app for children with autism.
Alex Budak, Sweden Manager, Reach for Change voiced that the three representatives that were chosen, represented the very best in social entrepreneurship in Sweden today.
This is the fifth consecutive year that Reach for Change has selected entrepreneurs with innovative
ideas that make the world better for children.

We congratulated Anton on his award and becoming a Change Leader and he told us:

“ Reach for Change is a great opportunity for me to make Snailday great! The award gives financial support but more importantly, it gives support from Reach for Change and the global community of Change leaders. With that, Snailday takes a big step out into the global social entrepreneurial community. Of course, it’s also a great stamp of approval that we are on the right track.”
