Female Founder Accelerator open for applications

3 November 2023

The Female Founder Accelerator powered by Barclays Eagle Labs and funded by UK Government has been designed to support 100 innovative, female-led technology businesses.

The programme, delivered by AccelerateHER, will run for nine weeks and see founders work with experts from across the entrepreneurial landscape in a series of masterclasses, with the focus on developing their business propositions further. The programme will also include opportunities for one-to-one mentoring, exclusive accountability groups, a Barclays champion, in-person community networking, and a showcase event.

The nine-week accelerator has been specifically designed for female-led ventures that have gone beyond the ‘idea’ stage.

Masterclass topics include sales and negotiation, pitching for success, finance, marketing, growing a team and how to scale.

Applications will close on 24 November 2023 and successful applicants will be notified by 15 December 2023.
