Plexiglass

Welcome to Plexiglass

The accelerator programme for female founders

We believe that innovation comes from diversity. That’s why we modelled Plexal’s innovation centre on a mini-city, because the strength of cities is in their diversity.

So it’s troubling that just 9% of startup funding in the UK goes to female CEOs and that just 17% of founders are female.

That’s part of the reason why we created Plexiglass. We want to bring more female tech founders to the fore by offering them content, support, mentoring and workspace in one of Europe’s leading innovation hubs. We’ll close the programme with a celebration of success at our pitch event, which will be attended by investors and the tech community.
