New support scheme for underrepresented tech founders launching in south London

OneTech supports underrepresented tech founders to develop ideas, start-up and grow their businesses. After successfully supporting entrepreneurs to raise more than ÂŁ11million and create 80 jobs elsewhere in London, their service is expanding to Lambeth, Lewisham, Southwark and Wandsworth. The aim is to increase the support provided for aspiring tech entrepreneurs and digitally-enabled start-ups in.

Working in partnership

The new programme is made possible by the South London Innovation Corridor, a partnership between Lambeth, Lewisham, Southwark and Wandsworth councils that seeks to make opportunities within the creative and tech industries more accessible to people from diverse backgrounds.

It will offer free opportunities for budding tech founders powered by industry experts Capital Enterprise, UKBlackTech and Foundervine. Aspiring entrepreneurs and founders get access to mentoring, workshops, pre-accelerator programmes, networking, access to free workspace as well as links to paid internships.

Celebrate the launch

To celebrate the launch of the programme, OneTech is inviting residents of the four Boroughs to join them for free taster workshops, drinks and networking at WeWork, Waterloo on November 19. People wanting to start a tech or digitally enabled business, have already done so, or would just like to come along to learn a bit more about what OneTech has to offer are welcome to attend.
