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:

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.
