Our Delivery Partners

Foundervine was founded by technologists and professionals who believe in a fairer tech entrepreneurship landscape and were frustrated by a lack of diversity. They work to remove social barriers to entrepreneurship and build a network of businesses across 4 continents that harness the power of digital technology.

They do this in 3 ways:

  • Help people from underestimated backgrounds to start up businesses
  • Scale up small businesses, enabling them to become investment ready
  • Act as a voice for underestimated entrepreneurs in the UK and beyond.

UK Black Tech is an organisation which exists to create the most diverse tech sector in the world ensuring that tech products, services and companies reflect us all.

They aim to:

The South London Innovation Corridor is a partnership between four London boroughs to drive growth within the creative and tech industries in Lambeth, Lewisham, Southwark and Wandsworth. By delivering new business support, talent development and affordable workspace opportunities and ensuring that these opportunities are made available to people who are currently underrepresented in the creative and tech sectors, the South London Innovation Corridor seeks to help individuals, entrepreneurs, start-ups and growing businesses to reach their potential.
