Helping Future Digital Leaders Grow.

Accelerating internal talent.

Less than 1 percent of VC funding goes to black founders globally. Only 2% to women. Our programmes help early- and revenue-stage founders significantly grow investor networks, expand business operations and absorb cutting-edge knowledge.

We partner with mission-driven organisations who share our mission to build entrepreneur-centric programmes that have inclusion at their heart. We run acceleration programmes designed to help diverse start-ups and scale-ups solve real world problems.

Our experience running start-up programmes shows us that enterprise skills are a force for good in all individuals - whether in school, startups or in the workplace. We have delivered training for organisations including Year Here, University of London and PwC UK.
