We believe there are new ways of mobilising, organising and sustaining efforts to solve problems that matter.
On our foundries we give each team office space, access to amazing mentors and learning on how to build a great business.
All of this happens over a few months. It’s an intensive way to start up, and that’s why it’s usually called an accelerator.
We call our programmes foundries because we do more than just accelerate – we forge new ways of working and new markets across a number of themes.
