Barclays Black Founder Accelerator – Demo Day
Join Foundervine and Barclays Eagle Labs for the second Barclays Black Founder Accelerator Demo Day, where you will discover some amazing founders from our second cohort.
Returning as our keynote speaker will be Ezechi Britton, Founding Member of Impact X Capital. We will also be joined by Nick Jenkins, former Dragon from Dragons Den and Founder of Moonpig, and Izzy Obeng, CEO of Foundervine.
This demo day gives the participants the opportunity to pitch some of the amazing work the founders have culminated throughout the intensive 12-week programme.
The programme was designed to celebrate Black founder-led businesses and provide them with the tools and knowledge to accelerate their business growth. This demo day is their opportunity to put their learnings into action and move on to the next stage of their business development. Many of these businesses were at the pre-seed or MVP stage at the beginning of the programme.
They have developed and refined their ideas over the past 12 weeks which has equipped them to set their business on a path to success. 15 founders from the cohort of 40 will be hitting the stage to present their businesses and they will be represented by a large range of sectors and skills.
Each business will present a short video demo before being quizzed by our expert panel and by you, the audience. We are so excited for you to join us on the day, so you can hear from the founders themselves so please do register and join us for what will be a fantastic experience.
