Last year, we decided to partner with The Angel Investing School (AIS) to widen participation for professionals from all backgrounds to learn how to get started with investing in startups. Through their 6 week courses, they teach 30 emerging investors every April and September on a guided tour of angel investing. Their most recent cohort had 43% women and 78% people of colour with a wide range of professions represented by community leaders to lawyers and management consultants.
We were proud to sponsor 5 places last September and we are pleased to announce that we will be sponsoring 5 more places for April 2021.
OneTech is proud to work with a value-aligned partner dedicated to creating a more diverse and inclusive tech ecosystem in the UK. Andy Ayim shared,
“We believe that investing in startups shouldn’t be so elusive and opaque. Our goal with this partnership is to make this education available to curious people from diverse backgrounds who would not ordinarily afford this opportunity. Our ambition ultimately is to teach a new breed of investors to invest in the next generation of diverse founders.”
