MNHQ here: opportunity for tech startups
0

FinnMumsnet · 26/10/2016 09:43

Hello,

We've been contacted by the organisers of Building Balance, a one day event for UK-based tech startups with at least one female founder, seeking early-stage or seed funding. The deadline to apply to be shortlisted is Friday 28 October at noon -- so if this sounds like you, feel free to follow the link and get cracking.

Doteveryone say: "In 2015, women represented just 17.5% of ICT professionals; at Doteveryone, we don’t understand why outdated gender values have infected such a new industry. In Martha Lane Fox’s BBC Dimbleby lecture in 2015, she set out her mission to make the UK the best place to be a woman in tech. We’ve been working on this mission and so far we’ve held two 5050tech Challenge events that took place in London and Newcastle where 24 startups attended a pitch clinic and then pitched to a room of investors.

Our biggest learning from the 5050tech events was that we need to reinvent demo days - the current format does not foster diverse teams. That’s why we are working with Kindred on our third event, Building Balance - a one-day event for diverse teams to meet diverse mentors on November 17th at Campus London.

We want founders to have the opportunity to have frank, open and honest roundtable discussions with industry leading mentors, covering how to storytell, how best to set yourself up for funding success, and how to build a kick-ass team and culture."

Thanks,
MNHQ
