Varun Bhanot from Unhoused.org, Founding the UK’s first Online Shop for the homeless

Today I am talking with Varun Bhanot who is the co-founder of Unhoused.org.  Unhoused.org is a social impact startup focused on using technology to help the homeless.

Varun founded Unhoused.org after he recognised the rising problem of homelessness and wanted to use his tech skills to make an impact.

Varun realised that many people don’t give money to homeless people because of doubts about where the funds might end up. So he set up Unhoused.org to link an everyday purchasing activity to positive impact - anyone can visit the online store and shop for clothing. For every piece bought, one is donated to a member of the homeless community.

Today more than 100 000 items of clothing have been distributed and they have designed a new product that is the world’s first self cleaning hoodie, powered by nanotechnology. 

In this episode you will hear about Varun’s journey from tech to social impact and all of the things he has learnt along the way.  Let’s get to my interview with Varun Bhanot
