Whether you’re working on a fledgling idea for a startup or already in the thick of scaling your tech enterprise, having a community of folks to connect with, share knowledge with, and generally find support amongst is invaluable. For women and non-binary folk in the tech startup world this is even more vital – ensuring you have a network to turn to as you hit each milestone, and when you want to give back to the next wave of inspiring women and non-binary entrepreneurs.
The AccelerateHER and Techscaler by CodeBase teams are excited to be joining forces in bringing dedicated meetups to life across Scotland for this community and peer-support building activity to grow. Meetups where you can come together, hear inspiring stories from fellow women and non-binary founders, and connect for ongoing peer-support.
AccelerateHER exists to accelerate the growth and success of female and non-binary founders, across the UK. The organisation does this through bootcamps, learning and networking events, the AccelerateHER Awards, partnership working, mentoring, profile raising, and through sister organisation Investing Women Angels.
Techscaler is a programme, run by CodeBase, that creates, develops, and scales startups by connecting founders with experts, teaching world-class playbooks, and hosting spaces for fellow founders to work and hang out. By working together – AccelerateHERxTechscaler by CodeBase provides scalable business with the skills, support, and platform to grow.
