One week left!

By Lily

Over the last seven weeks, we’ve had an overwhelming response to the Bethnal Green Ventures programme applications. On the one side, we’ve met people at office hours, meetups and pubs all over the country keen to share their amazingly ambitious ideas to change the world. On the other, investors have been coming from far and wide to talk to us about the potential for impact investment.

As we suspected, there is a huge hunger to start both building and investing in technology for “stuff that matters”. From collaborative education platforms, to healthcare hardware, to smart energy monitoring the variety of ingenuity is hugely exciting. We’re going to have to  make some very hard choices when applications close next week but we are massively encouraged by this response and we look forward to seeing the infrastructure to support this vibrant ‘tech for good’ ecosystem grow and flourish over the next few years.

And there is still one week left: so if you haven’t got your application in yet, do so now! Apply here before 5pm on April 29th.

If you want to chat to us about your application first, get in touch on hello@bethnalgreenventures.com

Good luck!
