Changing the face of Startups
OneTech is a ground-breaking new initiative, supported by the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, to provide female entrepreneurs, and those from some of London’s most underrepresented communities, with the opportunity to start and scale a high growth tech business.
The lack of diversity costs the tech industry dearly in untapped potential, talent and growth. Capital Enterprise has long recognised that this needs to change.
This project will connect founders with mentors and access a range of workspace, pre-acceleration, acceleration and investment readiness opportunities.
We are aiming to get businesses to better understand why diversity and inclusion makes sense; what needs to be done to help diversify their recruitment and selection processes; and double the number of female and BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) founders accessing investment by 2020.
We hope to inspire more women and individuals from underrepresented communities to consider starting an ambitious startup, and affect real change with supply, demand and culture change in London’s booming tech ecosystem.
