SocialBox.Biz, a socially focused London-based technology startup determined to use their expertise and knowledge for the betterment of both the homeless and elderly in accommodation services as well as unaccompanied refugee minors, had quite the year as they reflect on their coverage and accomplishments in 2016 this week.


Staring down 2017, the social impact firm had a whopping 18 articles and business features in internationally renowned publicans like the Guardian and the Huffington Post.

“We know a lot of what we do isn’t possible unless businesses and organisations aren’t aware that we exist,” said Peter Paduh, Founder of SocialBox.Biz. “The press is a unique way for transcending boundaries and getting the word out there that we’re here to take outdated laptops and re-home them to those in need raising awareness of the need for digital and social inclusion and solving the problem with a practical hands on approach”

SocialBox.Biz, in addition to their cloud-based IT solutions solving storage and cost problems for clients launched a “Laptops for the Homeless Support” initiative at the beginning of this year in order to collect outdated but still working laptops. By partnering with UK-based corporations over the last year, they have been able to place laptop-donations boxes on various properties and expand their presence. With over a million laptops replaced in the UK every single year, SocialBox.Biz are working hard in order to get their hands on those outdated items needed in the communities solving their clients corporate social responsibility problems at the same time.

Their next logical step was waging a press campaign that garnered them exposure in just about every logical UK publication. SocialBox.Biz was featured in the Digital Journal, Bloomberg, The Guardian, the Huffington Post, the Big Issue, LinkedIn, PressAt, PR-Web, Evening Standard,,,, Renewable Energy World, Storify, the London School of Business and Finance website, the University College London website, the London School of Economics, and the Tech section of News. The team would also like to extend special thanks to Paul Polman CEO at Unilever for the invitation to the The Unilever Sustainable Living Young Entrepreneurs Awards attended by founder Peter Paduh.

To recap some of their press shout outs in 2016, the Huffington Post ran their article

 “Making the UK a Better Place – One Laptop at a Time” for recounting the SocialBox.Biz platform. The Guardian recognised SocialBox.Biz as one of their startups of the year, and the Digital Journal ran their piece on the “New Guide to Making the World a Better Place with Old Laptops.” It all began with their end of December 2015 headline, “Homeless people to get laptops” ran by the Big Issue covering the launch of our own Laptops for Homeless Support Initiative.

“We couldn’t have had the year we’ve had without all of the supportive business, government, and local individuals who have helped us coordinate our laptop collection and handovers,” said Peter. “We are incredibly excited to see what 2017 has in store for SocialBox.Biz.”
