About 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 vision is a world where ambitious leaders, creators and innovators have the tools to build the organisations of tomorrow.

Our Mission

We are changing the global face of business. We exist to remove the social and economic barriers to innovation, disrupting the status quo in everything we do. Our work builds opportunities in underserved communities and helps tomorrow's leaders shape the future. By connecting today's leaders with mission-led organisations, we are transforming our society by making innovation open to anyone, anywhere.

Our Key Aims

 

  1. Access: We increase access to digital industries for diverse leaders, creators and innovators.
     

  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 founders primarily in the UK and beyond.
     

Together, we can create better business for all.
