Benefits of joining Breakthrough Labs


Access to experts with proven success

Breakthrough Labs' programmes follow the start-ups' journey and include workshops from subject-matter experts and seasoned entrepreneurs in areas relevant to start-ups' needs.


Connections with investors

Start-ups spend a lot of time reaching out to investors who might not be interested in their offering. Breakthrough Labs provides access to angel investors who are committed to investing in female founders and ready to listen to your pitch.


A growing network

Research shows that fewer female founders have access to a professional network than their male counterparts. Breakthrough Labs is a community of female founders, successful entrepreneurs, mentors and industry experts who can provide support to female founders. 


Exclusive offers from our partners

Each start-up participating in a Breakthrough Labs programme gets access to exclusive partner offers including:

  • AWS Activate credits and business support.

  • Microsoft for Start-Ups Azure benefits and support.

  • Competitive foreign currency rates and advice from Lumon Pay.
