MyPocketSkill Co-Founder, Zara Ransley, Selected to Join Silicon Valley Scaling Programme, Beyond HERizons
16th June 2021
MyPocketSkill Co-Founder, Zara Ransley, has been selected for Beyond HERizons, a 12-month scaling programme for high-growth companies, launched by Silicon Valley Comes to the UK.
Beyond HERizons supports the journey of female entrepreneurs through a programme that educates and connects to other women founders, investors and leaders across the UK, Europe and Silicon Valley. Zara will join 14 other female entrepreneurs across numerous sectors as they grow and scale their companies.
"I'm very proud and excited to be one of the 15 women entrepreneurs to take part in the Beyond HERizons programme. Raising funding is one of the hardest things female founders do as part of their entrepreneurial journey and statistics are not very encouraging. Beyond HERizons was founded specifically to overcome this challenge and to encourage diversity in the UK start-ups ecosystem. I look forward to connecting with other women founders on the cohort, impressive alumni and those supporting the programme. The trip to Silicon Valley as part of a trade mission is surely a highlight for any tech founder. MyPocketSkill is already on an exciting growth trajectory and I have no doubts that the programme will provide us with all the necessary components to supercharge it further."
Beyond HERizons aims to build an inclusive and diverse network that is passionate about balancing gender inequalities in the investment ecosystem.
