Interesting attending Techstars Demo Day last week. 70% of founders from outside the UK and 0.82% of applicants make it onto the programme. Would be great if somehow the 99% could still be supported (food for thought).
Also had a number of articles shared about Backstage Capital, below is the latest on the London Accelerator, featuring myself and Anisah Osman Britton.
Finally saw an incredible show hosted at Aviva by #TalkAboutBlack called An Evening with an Immigrant by Inua Ellam #BoyndGreat.
