Gender Balance

The tech industry and startup sector has a well-documented gender imbalance. Large players such as Google and Apple have openly declared their intention to reverse the trend.

Since its inception in 2011, part of iAccelerate’s core mission has been to create opportunities for the untapped potential for women to participate equally in all aspects of entrepreneurial endeavours.

iAccelerate is actively engaged in delivering deliberate gender balance within the innovation ecosystem. We do this by focusing on our execution, strategy development and key projects.
