Budding Brixton tech entrepreneurs invited to an online event to kick-start their business, 30th July 2020 – BrixtonBuzz


OneTech, a London-based organisation that supports underrepresented tech founders and connects them to opportunities, is hosting a virtual event for aspiring entrepreneurs on 30th July at 5pm.

Starting Up, intended particularly for female and BAME founders, will help attendees to get started or progress with their business and engage with peers.

The event is hosted in partnership with UK Black Tech and the South London Innovation Corridor, which supports residents of four South London boroughs – Lambeth, Lewisham, Southwark and Wandsworth.

During the event, founders will have the chance to listen to Richard Awoyemi, CEO and Founder at Opsonion, who will talk about his entrepreneurial journey; share their business ideas and get feedback and advice on how to progress from experienced mentors.

Finally, the event will conclude with an action plan session to consolidate learnings and put together practical actions to take next.

Since OneTech launched in 2018:

  • 600 people and 160 businesses have received support through a OneTech project
  • Of those people, women made up 49 percent and BAME 68 percent
  • As of December 2019, OneTech startups have raised £12.6m and created 126 jobs
  • 25 one-off events delivered by the OneTech team with partners such as UKBlackTech, YSYS, FounderVine and Purposeful Products
  • 9 Multi-Day Programmes, Pre-Accelerators and Founder Weekends delivered through The Accelerator Network, YSYS and FounderVine

OneTech has recently launched a new campaign to share nine Founder stories, providing role models, insight and advice to their community. They challenge the idea of who a ‘typical tech Founder’ is – check out the video above.
