Wayra Fair By Design is a new, Oldham based acceleration programme that will 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 disruptor businesses.

Start-ups accepted to the programme will receive the equivalent of £70,000 in cash and business services, including working space at Open Future_ North and access to investors, mentors and coaches, as well as access to a global audience through business development opportunities with Telefónica.

These are the first businesses Wayra UK are working with:

Wayra Fair by Design will be funded and supported by the Fair By Design Fund, a partnership between Big Society Capital, the Joseph Rowntree FoundationFinance Birmingham and Ascension Ventures.
