    Application Process

    Applications for our summer 2016 programme will open in spring. We’ll announce the exact dates via our mailing list, which you can sign up to over on the right. In the meantime, if you’d like to talk to us about your idea then get in touch to arrange a chat.

    There are two stages to our application process:

    Online application:  First we use an online form to filter applications. We particularly look at the importance of the problem and its relevance to what we’re looking for, the ingenuity of the solution and the quality of the team.

    Face-to-face interviews: We then invite around 40 teams to the interview stage. These are typically around 30 minutes long in front of a friendly panel consisting of Bethnal Green Ventures team members, an alumni founder and an investor or mentor.

    Following interviews our investment committee will meet to finalise 10-15 startups that will be offered a place on the accelerator programme.
