who are foundervine 

Across the UK, the digital technology sector is thriving. In London in particular, tech grows at more than two times the national average, contributing £184bn to the British economy. Despite this, the sector can feel out of reach for many. Our work exists because we see a digital technology ecosystem that feels out of reach for many diverse communities - particularly women and those from minority backgrounds.

Foundervine is an award-winning social enterprise specialising in start-up and scale-up acceleration programs. Since launching in 2018, we have helped over 2,000 future leaders create, test, sustain and develop entrepreneurial ventures.

We were founded by technologists and professionals who believe in a fairer start-up ecosystem. Frustrated by a lack of diversity, we’re on a mission to remove the social barriers to entrepreneurship and build the greatest network of digitally enabled businesses in the world.


Our unique approach to supporting future founders actively involves enabling companies, both public and private, big and small, to utilise their talent in supporting social change. We believe that companies of the future will not be measured by the value of their assets, but on the impact of their activities on communities. We are proud to partner with world-leading companies to run start-up and scale-up acceleration programs that build the talent pipeline globally. 

Our Mission

We are on a mission to remove the social barriers to entrepreneurship and build the greatest network of digitally enabled businesses in the world. We do this by helping diverse founders globally start up from scratch.

Our Key Aims


  1. Access: We increase access to entrepreneurship and social entrepreneurship for diverse founders.

  2. Acceleration: We increase opportunities for diverse founders, including access to networks, learning opportunities and investment-readiness support.

  3. Advocacy: We act as a voice for underestimated entrepreneurs primarily in the UK and beyond.

Together, we can make a difference.
