What other accelerators are saying

We recommend Esme and Considered Capital to everyone

“Esme did a brilliant job during a panel discussion aimed at offering insights into alternative funding routes to our Women in Innovation cohort. Her breadth of knowledge, authenticity, care and passion for the subject offered a truly valuable experience for the women attendees.” 

- Veronica Frincu, Women In Innovation Award

Our founders left with plenty of information and food for thought

“Esme delivered an engaging and informative workshop on alternative fundraising options for one of our cohorts. She introduced the group to options that were appropriate to their stage of growth and completely demystified the process of raising angel investment.” 

- Steph Lau, FounderVine

Esme gave everyone the confidence to look further and to take those initial steps.

“Esme ran a workshop for our programme for a group of new creative technology businesses making very tentative moves towards investors. Esme took them through an understanding of how the landscape is indeed more complex and also more interesting than first appears.”

- Gill Wildman, Upstarter
