Tech Society win KCLSU 'Best New Society of the Year'

KCL Tech Society was founded in 2013, by Informatics students Ammaar Reshi and Niklas Begley. The aims of the society are two-fold: to connect students at King's with some of the best tech companies and startups in the industry; and to create a collaborative community of people who are passionate about technology, whatever subject they are studying. This passion led to a series of workshops, and events such as HackKing's - the UK's largest student-led hackathon, for which KCL Tech secured sponsors to cover prizes from a £100 Just-Eat voucher, to a £15,000 investment from Student Upstarts.

In recognition of their great success over the past academic year, KCL Tech have been awarded the KCLSU 'Best New Society of the Year' award, 2013-2014. KCL Tech President, Ammaar Reshi, remarked "We're absolutely thrilled to have won this award and have our efforts recognised. We promise to continue pushing the boundaries in the University tech scene both at King's and the UK and, with the incredible community we have here at King's and around us, I'm confident we'll get there in no time. Once again, I'd like to thank everyone who supported us and believed in KCL Tech when it was just an idea: my parents, friends, our members, and the amazing KCL Tech Team. Thank God for all of the success we've had this year. It's been a great first year for KCL Tech".

KCL Tech has exciting plans for the next academic year. In collaboration with the computing societies of Imperial College and the University of Oxford, they have founded HackCampus - a new initiative that aims to keep the University tech scene in the UK connected by being the go-to source for the latest student opportunities and tech events in the country. They have already partnered with Index Ventures, Tech City UK, and Codecademy, and are set to build on the success of their first year.
