Fun Fact from UK Tech News: Tony Blair’s son startup Multiverse bags £32.3M, UK’s largest ever edtech funding round. Multiverse, an edtech startup that’s focused on high-quality education and training through a unique apprenticeship model secured funding.
If you recall our last blog post that shared the great news about the new partnership with Coding Black Females. Then you might have noticed the hint that Coding Black Females was “…one of our first partners”.
Yes, there is another partner and it’s the one and only YSYS.
Your Startup, Your Story (YSYS) is a startup community for people with shared values interested in launching a startup, joining a team or building a diverse and inclusive culture. They design and deliver programmes to support diverse talent to launch startups, develop new skills and kickstart their careers.
With each of their programmes, they partner with organisations, who are more committed to hiring and investing in diverse talent and curating inclusive cultures. Since 2017-2018 they have provided over 10,000 diverse individuals with access to opportunities in tech across the UK. Their mission now is to reach 100,000 by 2023.
Together I’m sure we can make that happen.
As always here is their website https://www.thisisysys.com/ if you wanna check them out and support them.
