This spring, we bring you three fantastic events, one insightful podcast and a thought provoking Green Paper guaranteed to get you thinking.
On Thursday 18th March – join us, together with East London Inclusive Enterprise Zone (ELIEZ) and Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson to celebrate the achievements of 12 entrepreneurs whose businesses are focused on accessibility.
Making an impact with vocational technology
We’ve been working with UFI VocTech Trust and others to explore how VocTech can improve vocational outcomes for people most impacted by the digital divide and at greatest risk from the long-term impact of the pandemic on access to training and jobs.
It’s time for you to get involved too – UFI want to engage with the wider community to help shape what they do next.
The new different
On 16th March, NorthInvest is hosting a showcase and investment forum event to inspire and educate the entrepreneurs and investors of the future, explore investment outlooks and insights, share knowledge and showcase the best of Northern tech start-ups.
Hear from our Portfolio Manager, Sutin Yang, alongside Check Warner from Ada Ventures and Chris Parsons from ClearlySo.
Championing UK tech for good
Just over a week ago, we teamed up with the Department for International Trade to showcase UK tech for good through a webinar and panel discussion featuring some of our amazing social tech alumni.
The session was recorded, so if you’d like to hear more about the UK tech for Good landscape from us, Beam, City MaaS and The Future Fox, you can watch the session now.
Bringing equality to impact investing
In this new podcast, the network for European funders, Ariadne, explores gender-lens investing and features from Ceri Goddard from Equality Impact Investing (EII).
We’re pleased to be working with Ceri as part of the EII Taskforce, to support their mission and bring further equality to our own work.
