AccelerateHER ties up with global tech network to boost female-founded companies

An awards and events platform that champions Scotland’s female-founded businesses has partnered with a global network for gender inclusion in the tech sector.

AccelerateHER, operated by investment firm Investing Women, has teamed up with a London group of the same name to give Scottish companies access to a wider international network of tech industry contacts.

London-based AccelerateHER, which had no prior link to its Scottish namesake before the partnership, is supported by Microsoft, Intel Capital and Henkel X and operates on a global scale.

On the back of the new agreement, Scottish-based AccelerateHER Awards finalists will travel to New York and Boston to meet with top tech entrepreneurs and investors.
