OneTech launches in South London to help underrepresented entrepreneurs

The initiative has launched a new programme offering free opportunities for budding tech founders

ONETECH has announced plans to launch its new programme helping budding entrepreneurs in South London at WeWork.

Over the past 12 months, building on the founding funding partnership with J.P.Morgan, OneTech has launched new activities targeting young people and different communities with support from the Mayor of London’s Digital Talent Programme and now the South London Innovation Corridor.

To celebrate, they will be hosting an evening event, including two free workshops targeted at entrepreneurs.

The new programme will offer free opportunities for budding tech founders delivered by industry experts Capital Enterprise, UKBlackTech and Foundervine.

Budding local entrepreneurs, founders and businesses will be able to access a range of offers through OneTech including mentoring, workshops, boot camps, taster sessions, pre-accelerator programmes, networking, access to free workspace and access to paid internships.

To celebrate the launch of the programme, OneTech will be offering free taster workshops and networking on November 19. This event is specific to entrepreneurs curious about starting a business and wanting to learn more about how OneTech might help them.

The event will also include a special panel discussion chaired by Andy Ayim, entrepreneur in residence at OneTech and venture partner in Backstage Capital.

Speakers on the panel will include Imelda Fossu from Foundervine, Rahmon Abjabe from KEAKIE Ltd, along with founders who have benefited from the OneTech’s support who will offer insights into what it takes to navigate the tech startup ecosystem.

Cecil Adjao of Foundervine said: “Foundervine are firm believers in spreading opportunity and knowledge across underserved communities to boost the creation, progression, and success of startups.

“The OneTech SLIC initiative will run across a two year period and will contribute directly to this cause with a significant impact, targeting boroughs where enormous potential dwells.

Foundervine are very pleased to run the startup entrepreneurial labs and pre-accelerators to not only encourage the formation of new businesses, but also help young founders succeed with the right support network. We are very excited about the journey with the new and early stage founders.”
