LogMeIn wins Genius Loci Award
Hungarian startup LogMeln was awarded the Genius Loci Award for its Micro Grant program which supports IT and mathematics education, along with helping strengthen the future labor market, having distributed altogether $30,000, the company said today in a press release.
"A few years ago we realized that we need to do something for the young geniuses, however, we did not carry out empty CSR activity, so we were looking for something that matched our portfolio and helped for real" Michael Zwecker Director of LogMeIn User Assistance said. “We put special emphasis on educating the youth,” the director added.
Matematika Összeköt Egyesület, a Hungarian NGO specializing in the organization of mathematics competition, was awarded HUF 600,000 to popularize mathematics education among children, involving approximately 5,000-6,000 children. “The work of our hundreds of volunteers was aided by LogMeIn, and we are thankful for that,” association chairman Tamás László Balogh said.
