Angel group Investing Women has agreed a partnership between its AccelerateHER awards and events platform with its London-based namesake co-founded in 2016 by Brent Hoberman.
accelerateHER operates in the US, Europe and the Middle East and has hosted a number of high profile international events.
The joint arrangement will enable Scotland-based tech companies involved in Investing Women’s AccelerateHER programme access to this international network.
Under the new deal a number of Scottish 2019 AccelerateHER Awards finalists will travel to New York and Boston next week where they will be introduced to top tech entrepreneurs and investors. The companies heading to the US include SnapDragon, Criton, Game Doctor, Biotangents and CogniHealth.
Jackie Waring, Founder & CEO of Investing Women said: “Accessing an international network of globally renowned entrepreneurs will be hugely beneficial to our Scottish AccelerateHER female founders. This will continue to grow the prominent global connections we have established through Investing Women.”
Laura Stebbing, Co-CEO of accelerateHER spoke about the “common purpose” the new partnership will bring to women.
“We can’t wait to connect these women founders of fast-growth businesses in Scotland to investors, fellow entrepreneurs and CEOs who will help them on their international growth journeys.”
