The Female Founders Startup Battle

Does your startup have what it takes?

On the 19 & 20 July, unbound London will welcome 5,000 founders, entrepreneurs, investors, corporate & brand executives and opinion-formers to the iconic Old Truman Brewery for a two-day celebration of innovation. The festival connects you with sources of innovation from around the world. Truly cross-industry, unbound London is the bridge between business and the world’s digital and technological pioneers.

This year, the festival prepares to host some of Europe’s leading Female Founders in a battle to prove their startups’ prowess.

In a world fighting disparity between the sexes, the technology sector is still suffering. Women make up just 14% of founders and entrepreneurs throughout the UK – our aim is to change that. The Female Founders Startup Battle invites eight top entrepreneurs from across Europe to take part in a live, interactive and inspiring battle.

The Prize:
A place on Beluga Bean Launch


If you want to launch or re-launch your business, this course is for you. Launch is a one-year mentoring journey led by Planet Organic Founder, Renée Elliott, and Life Coach and Thrive Global facilitator, Sam Wigan. Held in London, the course consists of one day each month, covering all aspects of business planning to create or re-strategise your business PLUS the personal discovery journey to remove barriers and create ease. A whole person process that supports you in your business and personal skills, Beluga Bean Launch is not so much an incubator or accelerator, but more of a greenhouse. More information here.

This prize is worth £4,000 plus VAT.
