unstar this property answer text <p>Tech Nation (formerly Tech City UK) does not directly fund tech start-ups, though they do run programmes such as Rising Stars, Upscale, and Future Fifty, that help start-ups access funding. They have published a report that highlights the state of diversity in the UK tech sector, and the need to do more especially for female founders. The report is available at https://technation.io/insights/diversity-and-inclusion-in-uk-tech-companies/</p><p> </p><p>They have also joined a consortium with Capital Enterprise, Your Startup, Your Story (YSYS) and Diversity VC, funded by JP Morgan, that aims to double the number of female and ethnic minority founders in three London boroughs by 2020.</p><p> </p><p>Meanwhile, as part of the Government’s work to increase diversity and build a Britain in which small businesses continue to thrive, Alison Rose will lead a review into barriers to female entrepreneurship, and exploring what can be done to overcome them. The review will bolster the Government’s work to make it easier for women to access the support they need to get their ideas off the ground and grow their businesses. The government will consider and respond to the findings of the review when it is published in the Spring.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The UK Digital Strategy set out our commitment to enabling a more diverse digital workforce. As the digital revolution progresses, many more jobs will require digital skills and many more tech roles will be created. We cannot afford for underrepresented workers, such as women or those from BAME backgrounds, to be excluded from or unable to progress within these roles. However, Government cannot do this alone and we have engaged with numerous stakeholders to help us further our aim.</p><p> </p><p>We are aware that the Inclusive Tech Alliance launched on 14 November 2018 and we will be engaging with them.</p> more like this
