The AccelerateHER Awards, in partnership with Barclays Eagle Labs, celebrate women excelling in their sector. The awards aim to provide an opportunity for business women who have founded or cofounded their companies to raise their profile, gain access to leading investors and expand their network.
The awards are split across 5 regions in the UK: Wales, Northern Ireland, Northern England, Scotland and South England; with 4 categories in each region: MedTech and Science, FinTech and Cyber Security, CleanTech and Climate or Disruptive Innovation. This year, the Awards were also divided in 5 main regions: Parallel Carbon participated in the Northern England final, where Aránzazu competed against Jennie Johnson, from My First Five Years Ltd, and Olivia Governor, from the Student Bubble.
Participating in awards and competitions like AccelerateHER are a great opportunity to showcase what we are doing in Parallel Carbon and to network with inspiring people.
