arkisites is accepted onto AccelerateME

Elijah Ajuwon

In December 2019 arkisites was chosen from over 120 startups to be on one of the most prestigious startup accelerators in North West England. arkisites will be joining cohort 6 of AccelerateME's programme as the only non-profit organisation on the cohor; arkisites was started with the sole purpose of bridging the access gap between minority ehtnic groups, young people and the tech sector and it has been truly humbling to have been selected. Over the next four months the founding team will receive mentorship and professional help so that we can reach the next level of growth. We will also receive equity free funing and free office space.

We are thankful for all of the support we have received thus far and we would love to connect with people who are driven to chaning the future of inclusion and education in the tech space. We would love to hear from you on how we can work tofgether to change this space for the better.
