Earlier this month we held a Demo Day for the twelve ventures who completed our latest programme in Autumn 2021. As the newest companies to join BGV’s portfolio, the ventures address a broad range of problems, from pension inequality, to helping families living with dementia, to designing the carbon out of construction.

Over the course of the programme we saw the ventures achieve a number of amazing milestones such as launching products and securing paying clients.
