At Bethnal Green Ventures  we believe it’s never been easier to use digital technology to change the world for the better. More and more people are starting to rethink, redesign and rebuild the way we educate our children, provide healthcare and live sustainably on a planet of limited resources. Through our programme of investment and support, we want to help build this community of people who are making stuff that matters.

To date, we have invested in 42 teams on ventures ranging from more ethical mobile phones and 3D printed orthotics, to smart NHS booking systems and mobile games for people suffering from panic attacks. You can read more about our teams here.

So if you have an idea to tackle a big challenge through technology, here’s your chance!

We are looking for ambitious, early-stage teams using technology to address some of the toughest social and environmental challenges.  From disrupting education to revolutionising healthcare, to coding against climate change. You can find out more details about what we’re looking for here.

We invest £15,000 in ten successful teams in exchange for 6% equity and provide three months of intensive support to help you get your idea off the ground. We do this with the help our large network of mentorsbrilliant alumni and the BGV team. We also provide you with free office space in central london.
