Event description


The British Consulate New York, the Mayor’s International Business Programme, and the UK’s Department for International Trade are proud to announce the UK’s Female Founders’ Trade Mission to New York, 1 - 3 April 2019.

This Mission aims to accelerate growth for female founders of UK-headquartered tech scale-ups via a 3 day program with networking events, roundtable discussions, pitching sessions, knowledge seminars, and introductions to prominent business leaders, investors, ecosystem influencers, and other female entrepreneurs in NYC eager to share their success stories. The programme will have a unique focus on the barriers female founders face when raising venture capital, with a view to exploring effective interventions and informing UK government policy. Previous UK & MIBP Trade Missions have seen companies successfully open New York offices, develop new networks, and generate new New York business and investment leads.

Ideal candidates are female founders of UK-headquartered tech scale-ups who:

  • have raised at least seed stage and/or Series A VC funding

  • are looking to raise a US funding round within the next 12-18 months

  • are actively entering the US market with a New York market ready product or service

  • have existing US clients

  • are specifically interested in developing New York City investor networks and business connections

To help us qualify applicants for the Mission and to tailor a high impact programme, please fill in the application as completely as possible. All information will be kept strictly confidential. The deadline to apply is 8 February 2019. Successful applicants will be notified of their acceptance onto the Mission shortly after the deadline.

For info: Flights and accomodation for attendees will be covered by the British Consulate General NY and London & Partners. However, companies will be required to pay an administration fee of £500 + VAT to attend.
