    Apply now for BGV’s autumn accelerator programme
    by Jessica on May 4, 2017

    Applications for our autumn accelerator programme are now open!

    We’re on the hunt for ambitious, talented teams building startups that use technology to tackle tough social and environmental problems. Does this sound like you?

    Our accelerator provides £20,000 investment (plus access to further funding of £50,000), and an intensive 12 week programme of mentoring, support and office space, to help you launch and grow your tech for good startup.

    Applying is pretty easy, you just need to complete this form. But before you hit submit we strongly recommend your team comes to one of our Q&A events in London, to find out more about the programme and meet the BGV team and some of the people we support.

    BGV Q&A, Monday 15th May, 6.30pm – 8.30pm: Click here to book

    BGV Q&A, Tuesday 23rd May, 6.30pm – 8.30pm: Click here to book

    To date, we have invested in 93 startups ranging from a more ethical mobile phone and a social network for youth mental health, to a smart NHS booking system and online language lessons taught by refugees. So if you’re selected for the accelerator you’ll be joining one of the strongest networks of tech for good founders around.

    The deadline for applications is 23:59 BST on Sunday 18th June 2017.
