Description

Bethnal Green Ventures is an accelerator programme for people who want to change the world using technology.

We invest in and support great teams with new ideas to help build solutions to social and environmental problems through an intensive three-month programme.

It’s a new way of supporting people to grow sustainable social innovations that have the potential to change the lives of millions of people.

We’re looking for early stage technology startups who are tackling problems in the areas of HEALTH, EDUCATION, SUSTAINABILITY and DEMOCRACY AND SOCIETY. That could be anything from fixing healthcare to reducing carbon emissions or improving education to reducing crime – the key is that your idea must have the potential to help millions of people somewhere along the line. Read more about our impact areas below.

Bethnal Green Ventures is an accelerator programme for people who want to change the world using technology.

We invest in and support great teams with new ideas to help build solutions to social and environmental problems through an intensive three-month programme.

Why?
We think there’s huge potential for the online world to radically improve things that really matter in the offline world: from how we provide health and social care to designing new forms of education, energy creation and employment. These ideas don’t come from traditional companies, governments or charities. They start with smart, passionate, practical people.

How?
Bethnal Green Ventures seeks out people with great ideas: they might be software developers, designers or people with personal experience of something they want to change – from teachers and doctors, to patients and carers. We look for very early-stage ideas – not business plans – and we’re more interested in potential than experience.

We select teams of between two and four people to be part of the Bethnal Green Ventures programme. We invest £15,000 in each team in exchange for 6% equity. We provide three month programme of support and advice to help build, test and launch each startup.

Our aim is to not only to launch a set of new ventures, but to build an alumni community that will go on to create and run even more social startups in the future.
