Since 2020 Barclays Eagle Labs & Foundervine have been supporting black founders through our accelerator programmes. Over the past three years, the accelerator has provided founders with the tools, knowledge and resources to take their.
business to the next stage of growth as well as connecting them with world class coaches and Barclays champions whilst on the programme. As a result, we have seen 115 accelerated and over £7.7m* in funds raised by our cohort and alumni. (*Lifetime data sourced from Beauhurst as of 12.10.23)
In collaboration with the Lincolnshire Black Community Network & The University of Lincoln, we will be hosting Black
Founders Connect, with the aim of supporting the community based in Lincolnshire.
Lincolnshire Black Community Network want to create a network for all diverse black individuals within Lincolnshire County

They also aim to create a robust online and offline ecosystem where Black individuals can network, access resources, and engage in various activities that promote personal and professional growth.
