The London Founder Institute, the local chapter of the world's largest pre-seed startup accelerator, is proud to announce the newest Alumni from the London Virtual Fall 2021 program.
Two hundred fifty people applied to the program, and after an intense four months of aggressive business-building sprints and constant evaluation and feedback from investors and mentors, just ten companies were able to make it through.
Each of these Founders have demonstrated a high level of perseverance and creativity, and their businesses have been thoroughly vetted and supported by a panel of London's top startup experts and investors.
The new London portfolio Alumni invite members of the public startup community to join them for an online cohort Graduation event on Thursday, 3 February 2022, featuring special guest StyleSwap CEO Josephine Waddington.
And now, without further ado, we proudly present the newest Alumni of the London Founder Institute Fall 2021 accelerator:
