GoodTech Ventures unveils promising new businesses in latest Accelerator cohort

A further 10 ventures have been selected for the second cohort to take part in the GoodTech Ventures Accelerator, supporting impact-led start-ups.

The programme is delivered by Catch22 in partnership with Social Tech Trust and Unity Ventures with funding and support from Ufi, Microsoft and the UK government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

David Hinton, Senior Venture Partner at Catch22’s GoodTech Ventures, said:

"We're excited to announce the arrival of the second cohort of the GoodTech Ventures Accelerator, comprising 10 remarkable ventures. The selection process was highly competitive, with numerous exceptional impact ventures to choose from. At GoodTech Ventures, our mission is to champion founders dedicated to leveraging technology for a stronger society. These 10 ventures embody this commitment, and we're proud to stand behind them as they set out to make a lasting difference in our communities."

GoodTech Ventures supports early-stage impact-led tech founders through a community of practice and an accelerator programme.
