WHAT IS THE WAYRA FAIR BY DESIGN ACCELERATOR?
Wayra Fair By Design is an Oldham based acceleration programme that supports early stage businesses that tackle the poverty premium. In sectors where people in poverty pay more for many everyday goods and services, such as energy, insurance, borrowing, transport and food, Wayra UK will support up to seven start-ups a year to scale and grow innovative, disruptor businesses.
The first cohort of the Wayra Fair By Design Accelerator are reaching the end of their programme and will be graduating towards the end of 2018. We are delighted with the progress that all our incubated businesses have made this year, with significant increases in turnover and profitability, new contracts won, teams expanded and new products launched. We’re now working on the programme for year two in 2019 so do pop back here regularly if you’re interested in taking part or finding out more.
