    Application Process

    Applications for Bethnal Green Ventures Winter 2016 accelerator are now open! We are looking for ambitious, early-stage startups using technology to address some of the world’s toughest social and environmental challenges.  From tackling loneliness to revolutionising access to healthcare or improving resilience to climate change. You can find out more details about what we’re looking for here.

    There are two stages to our application process:
    Online application:  We use our online form to filter initial applications. We are particularly looking 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 invite around 30 teams to the interview stage. These are typically around 30 minutes long in front of a 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 accepted onto the Winter 2016 accelerator.

    If you have any questions about the programme have a look at our FAQ page first. If you still have questions or if you’d like to talk to us about your idea beforehand then get in touch to arrange a chat.
