Introducing the 12 tech for good startups on the autumn BGV accelerator

We’re kicking off our ninth accelerator cohort today with 12 exciting startups using technology to tackle tough social and environmental problems.

These startups will receive an investment of £15,000 in exchange for 6% equity, co-working space at the Ministry of Startups in central London, and an intensive 12 week programme of mentoring and support – designed to accelerate the growth of their social venture.

The 12 teams were selected from over 170 applications. We were really pleased to see the diversity in the applications this year – 36% of the startups that applied had female founders (compared to 35% last year), and 56% of all founders that applied were female. The most common theme in applications was sustainability – with 31% of startups tackling problems in this area, compared with 25% in education, 24% in health and 20% in democracy.

And now, it’s time to introduce you to the new teams:
