Fund-Raising Manager

“We are a dynamic, passionate and ambitious charity dedicated to putting an end to the skills gap. We have set ourselves some big targets in order to make a difference for children from some of the poorest backgrounds in the UK.” Born in 2011, Founders4Schools began as an extension of Silicon Valley Comes to the UK as a manually curated idea to bring inspiring entrepreneurs to universities and schools. The feedback from parents, educators and students was so powerful, we decided to think about how we could use technology common in other industries to the education industry. So by 2013, spurred on by encouragement from Government, industry and the educational sector we collaborated with linkedin, edubase, duedil to create a tech platform that supercharged educators to create student-employer encounters as easily as buying a book on Amazon.
