LOS ANGELES, Nov. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Core Technology Foundation, Inc. (CoreTech) has partnered with HeroX to launch their ideation challenge: Apps for Humanity.

CoreTech is constantly looking for innovative ideas to make the world a better place. In partnership with HeroX, a competition platform to drive social innovation, CoreTech is looking for developers to solve humanitarian issues using their CORE application platform.

"CORE was built to help nonprofits, developers, and entrepreneurs build applications that easily scale to impact hundreds of millions of lives," says Clark Hogan, President and CEO of CoreTech. "Thanks to the open source movement, we're placing traditionally expensive and sophisticated technology in the hands of the nonprofit world so they can implement virtually any software-driven solution using our scaling platform.  HeroX has an awesome vision for social innovation and their reach is incredible. Partnering with HeroX allows us to get CORE in the hands of some of the world's smartest people, so we're excited to see amazing ideas come from around the globe."  

Many nonprofits don't have the resources and expertise to implement advanced technology in their projects. To address this issue, CoreTech is soliciting some of the best ideas from around the world to build out solutions for humanity using their technology platform. HeroX provides CoreTech with the necessary platform to stand at the forefront of global innovation.

CoreTech's CORE software is an open source toolbox that simplifies technology for nonprofit organizations. Cloud scalability, redundancy, security, personal identity and micro-transactions are just some of the features that the CORE software offers. Tremendous opportunities exist to capitalize on the most pressing humanitarian issues with CoreTech's HeroX Challenge.
