WE Accelerate

We’re launching a new initiative, WE Accelerate, to help women-led ventures to access funding, connections and develop additional skills to get to their next stage of development. It is aimed at teams led by women from Imperial who have completed WE Innovate, our pre-accelerator programme, or an equivalent programme. We are working towards a 2020 launch – stay tuned!


Following five years of working on WE Innovate and with our alumni, we have identified a significant gap in support available to founders. This occurs following a pre-accelerator or accelerator, when a team has won funding, undertaken a fair amount of customer validation and has a developed prototype. We want to team up with key players in the startup ecosystem to develop a fund-focused initiative, that takes practical action based on leading research and best practice methods of support.  


We are exploring sponsorship and partnership opportunities to deliver WE Accelerate. We are looking for partners who are motivated to fund women-led startups and can help founders make useful connections to advance their venture. If this sounds like you, please email Olivia Standish
