An event to help democratise entrepreneurship to exceptional founders from Black, Asian and other ethnic minorities communities – supported and powered by Floww.
Be one of the selected founders to present your company to leading VC’s one-on-one. Floww’s team of trained accountants and content writers will also review your business plan and help you to get you pitch perfect.
Register (for free) your start-up for the pitching sessions before the deadline of 23rd of September.
We believe that access to capital should not be about who you know – but what you can do. So we are proud to partner this event to help people find the right advice and funding to grow their business.
