Bethnal Green Ventures Winter 2016
BGV have been hugely supportive of our early stage bibliotherapy venture, Biblio.life.
The team have a range of expertise and strong networks and the programme consisted of lots of good workshops by some amazing people who work in the Tech for Good space. Because of the BGV ethos, the people in their networks are generally super-motivated and also nice people to work with and our cohort is also a very diverse and supportive group.
Most of all though, I feel that it has been the BGV team's personal qualities which have enabled me to get the most out of their accelerator program. Throughout, they have been focussed on me as a person and have supported me through some very difficult decisions and testing times. In the #TechforGood world it seems that leading by example on the "for good" bit of this is their preferred way of working and as a beneficiary I have been grateful for this.
Incredible programme that kickstarted TreePress and so many others. The support, mentors and peers are second to none. We'd recommend every social startup to consider taking part - this is the best place in the world to start your business. And it's so much more than that...we'll always call BGV home!
