EverKnock founder Dan Awais-Dean has been selected for support by the OneTech Entrepreneur Incubator.
Comprising four expert-led programmes for early-stage businesses, and delivered in partnership with JPMorgan Chase and The Nest, the incubator is designed to challenge lack of diversity and support underrepresented entrepreneurs. Black leaders will deliver specialist sessions and support for the black community around programmes organised by the stage of their business; ideation, validation, early traction and funding readiness.
Emma Obanye, entrepreneur in residence for OneTech, commented: “The lack of diversity in tech is a big issue, and the events of this year have once again surfaced the ongoing issues around institutional and structural racism both in society and the economy. OneTech’s mission is to support the underrepresented, increase the visibility of role models, and address systemic problems through diversity and inclusion best practices, and this has never been more vital.”
Gary Stewart, CEO and co-founder of The Nest, said: “As a founder from various underrepresented backgrounds, I know how essential it is to have the right knowledge set and access to a network of peers, experts and capital to succeed. We have invited the best entrepreneurs in the world to share their lessons learned with you, founder to founder, and then facilitate access to some of the world’s top investors, all from the palm of your hand.”
