Over the past three months, Blue Lake together with the Tech Nation Visa Team has been working on a fantastic initiative to help exceptional international founders to meet UK’s leading VC players. Being immigrant founders ourselves, we are very well aware of how difficult it can be for newcomers to enter UK’s investment bubble.
To change this, we are excited to kick off the International Founders Office Hours initiative. Between May and August 2022 international startups will have an opportunity to book a 1-2-1 with partners from some of the UK’s top firms to build new connections and get initial feedback.
If you are an international founder in the UK or considering moving to the UK, join our launch event on the 3rd of May to meet Blue Lake, Tech Nation and the VCs participating in Office Hours. Hear the first hand experience from some of the phenomenal international founders who successfully raised funds in the UK. Join us to learn more about how you can be involved. Sign up here.
If you are an investor (VC, Family Office, CVC, Angel) and you would like to participate in Office Hours meeting international founders, please complete the short form here and we will get back to you.
More details about the project are on the website https://www.internationalfounders.co.uk/
Together we can make the UK VC ecosystem more open to international talent from all over the world!
