Just as the Gapsquare Team jet off to the Big Apple to New York to pitch to The Massachusetts Institute of Technology Solve programme, we also found out that we have been chosen for the prestigious Berlin-based F Lane Acceleration programme,designed for 5 high-potential digital impact ventures focusing on female empowerment.

 

F- Lane is the Vodafone Institute Accelerator for Female Empowerment which has worked with innovative enterprises worldwide, taking them to the next level in their development and expansion. The programme leverages the impact of digital ventures with a female empowerment focus, aiming to decrease the time it takes for a project to achieve its aims and guarantee ongoing financial stability.

Gapsquare is one of only 5 ventures that have been selected out of over 170 applications from 50 countries. Each of these teams are working achieve greater equality for women through their enterprises with remarkable projects across the planet in Uganda, the USA, India and Mozambique.

Gapsquare uses disruptive technology to tackle the gender pay gap. With the World Economic Forum stating it will take 117 years to close, we have designed a product that analyses pay data, builds narratives and tailor-made recommendations to achieve gender equality in the workplace and close the gender pay gap.

 

Being part of the F Lane programme allows us to accelerate our work, providing a simple solution to the pay gap for businesses across the globe. It is a very exciting time for the Gapsquare team, as we reach more companies looking to tackle and eliminate the gender pay gap and see the long term impact our work has for equality, diversity and inclusion.

 

We are thrilled to see the strides that team Gapsquare are making, in being part of the F Lane programme alongside some other remarkable ventures and we look forward to going even further in ending the gender pay gap with the support of the F Lane team.
