Bethnal Green Ventures Autumn 2017

Sep 13 - Dec 1 | London, United Kingdom
BGV is an accelerator programme for startups using technology to tackle big social and environmental problems.

About this Program

Through our accelerator programme we support great teams with ideas for using technology to tackle tough social or environmental problems. We focus on the areas of health, education, sustainability, work, democracy and society - and we look for ideas that have the potential to impact the lives of millions of people.

The BGV accelerator programme offers:
- Investment: £20,000 cash in exchange for 6% equity
- Support: An intensive 3 month programme of workshops and 1:1 support to accelerate your startup
- Connections: Access to a network of over 100 mentors
- Office space: 6 months’ free office space in central London

After the programme all BGV ventures have access to:
- Potential further investment from BGV of up to £50,000
- A programme of ongoing learning and development provided by BGV
- The BGV alumni community with over 80 tech for good founders

We are building a community of tech for good founders where the support continues beyond the accelerator programme. BGV alumni benefit from regular community events and ongoing support from the BGV team, mentors and fellow alumni.

If you'd like to find out more then come along to one of our Q&A events in London in May. You'll get a full understanding of the BGV accelerator programme and you'll meet some of the startups we’ve supported, so you can learn what it’s like to be part of the growing BGV community.
