Who is Foundervine
Foundervine is an award-winning social enterprise focussed on running “immersive” entrepreneurship labs that help young people from underrepresented communities imagine, start, and grow new ventures. Since launching in 2018, Foundervine has helped over 2,000+ diverse, future leaders create, test and sustain entrepreneurial ventures in Europe and Africa.
Our model is centered on connecting high-potential early-stage ventures to mission-driven companies, both public and private, to utilise their talent in scaling early-stage ventures.
We were set up by a small group of management consultants, technologists, and enterprise educators as a progressive and charitable organisation in response to the scarcity of diverse talent successfully pursuing the establishment and growth of information technology entrepreneurship ventures.
Frustrated by a lack of diversity, we’re on a mission to remove the social barriers to entrepreneurship and build the greatest network of digitally-enabled businesses in the world.
We’re proud to partner with world-leading companies to run start-up and scale-up acceleration programmes that build the talent pipeline globally.
