Our Mission

Our mission is to create a community of high-performing and diverse tech professionals in London. We do this by delivering world-class accelerator programmes and connecting our community with remarkable jobs.

As a part of their development, our intrapreneurs will share their learning to inspire and teach young people from underrepresented groups within tech. The profits from our programme sales are then dedicated to supporting those same young people with their own journey. 

 

In short: we harness the power of our network to instigate a cycle of social change.
