This is an event to celebrate all the businesses created on the Zinc Mission 2 programme, which kicked off on October 1st 2018.
51 incredible individuals joined the 9-month programme to build businesses to unlock new opportunities for people in places that have been hard-hit by globalisation and automation.
The programme brings together creative and diverse Founders from a variety of backgrounds (including Tech, Business, Design, Media, NGOs, and Education) together with over a hundred cutting-edge experts from academia, the public sector, NGOs, and business.
We are excited to share that we have 18 companies in our Mission 2 Portfolio, all of which represent a very diverse group of Founders: more than half of the companies have a female founder; 70% of the Founders are not British-born; and the average age of the Founders is 35 (ranging from 25 to 56).
We’d like to celebrate the fruits of their hard work, ambition, determination and creativity; and thank all of you who helped make this happen at our Mission 2 Celebration event.
Plan for the evening: You will be greeted with drinks and refreshments and have the opportunity to speak to the Founders of our portfolio companies. This will be followed by some short speeches and networking opportunities.
We really look forward to celebrating with you.
