Application Criteria

  • Your business must either be founded by a woman or co-founded by a woman who holds significant equity (not options) and in a C-level position. Please note, for mixed team, the term sheet will hold the other founders liable to this clause.
  • You should have a team that demonstrates industry, technical and/or startup experience. For young founders, university degrees or experience within the industry of your business should be sufficient but we highly advise finding cofounders to for example offset your lack of business experience. For seed investments, feel free to contact us directly if you’re having troubles finding a cofounder.
  • Your pitch MUST follow the rules stated on our Pitch Requirements page. 
  • Ideally, you are a UK business eligible for SEIS and/or EIS tax relief
  • You are willing to work with advisors
  • You are willing to commit wholeheartedly to the training process
  • All industries are accepted, however, based on the number of applications, three verticals will be chosen for each training program. 

All ideas must be original work or an improvement upon an existing idea without infringements.

We use an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female”, and we welcome transwomen, genderqueer women, and non-binary people who identify as gender-nonconforming, female, and/or woman.
