UnFound Accelerator deadline for applications

Hi all,

Hope all is well.

I was wondering if I could ask you to share with your networks the call for applications for the Unfound Accelerator. The deadline is approaching quickly (5 March!) and we are eager to reach as many people as possible. Outlandish and Common Knowledge are some of the co-ops involved in the delivery, so you are welcome to mention Co-Tech’s involvement in it too.

Here is a short paragraph you can use or adapt as you wish:

The Unfound Accelerator 2023 is a free programme supporting teams to set-up a platform business as a co-op (a platform co-op) through weekly expert-led workshops and tailored one-to-one sessions. The programme ends with a pitch event towards which The Co-operative Bank is providing a £10,000 prize fund.

Platform co-ops are businesses that trade via a digital app or platform and are owned and controlled by their members. They offer a fairer way to trade, with users and workers controlling the business and financially benefitting from its success, as opposed to distant shareholders. You can apply for the UnFound Accelerator here.

And here are some posts you can share about it on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram.
