Themes: Assistive & Accessible Technology

Seeking growth-stage ventures for new Assistive and Accessible Tech Growth Fund. It's time to think big.​ ​

There is a gap in the disability innovation space. The market for investing in accessible technology is focussed on pre-seed and seed phase companies. To accelerate mass market adoption of Accessible Technology we must think bigger.

Accessible Technology is growth stage ready. The Accessible & Assistive Technology Growth Fund (AT Growth Fund) will transcend a new frontier for venture capital and commercial lending in the disability innovation sphere.

We know that demand is increasing across all markets. By powering innovations with a validated product and proven market, there is an opportunity to optimise for scale through public and private capital, venture building and knowledge exchange.

Mainstream adoption for large scale impact is possible. The AT Growth Fund aims to unlock £100m of risk capital to invest in the most promising growth stage ventures, helping to reach millions worldwide.

It will be the world’s most ambitious scaling pathway for high-potential growth stage accessible and assistive technology ventures, with the goal to provide access to life changing products and services for millions of persons with disability.

We are calling for growth-stage ventures with seven figure revenues and similar capital investment needs, who are looking to scale operations in low-and middle-income countries.

The fund is in a development phase. For ventures with a mass market vision, this is an opportunity to contribute to the future of private finance in the AT space, and to be on the radar of the AT Growth Fund ahead of it's investment releases in the coming years. We are looking to understand the needs of growth stage ventures to feed this into the design and development of the fund.

Complete the growth-stage venture form and we'll be in touch to find out more.

Funded by UK aid as part of our AT2030 programme. If you would like to know more or have any questions please reach out to Innovation Manager, Daniel Hajas:
