Join TAYO International as we pitch at the Aspect Student Accelerator Programme (ASAP) Demo Day on Wednesday, January 27, from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM (GMT). Attendees will get to witness pitches from socially-focused businesses, network with the founders and other attendees, and learn more about what these unique ventures have to offer. The event is open to all and you can register here for free.
“It’s exciting for TAYO because this accelerator is the first of its kind in Europe, bringing together different ventures from different universities. The businesses are all focused on either socio-economic or environmental issues,” said Nathania Aritao, the founder of TAYO. “There’s this wonderful portfolio of ventures that is using social science and entrepreneurship to address all problems - covering ground in learning, sustainability, health and empowerment."
ASAP is a flagship four-month social sciences student and alumni accelerator hosted by the LSE to support and scale socially-responsible student and alumni ventures. Aritao learned about ASAP via the Enterprising Oxford community. TAYO —which began at the Oxford University’s Saïd Business School — applied to the programme last year and was among the 19 ventures handpicked for the first cohort.
“This is a big first for TAYO, being a part of this accelerator. Given the situation of starting a business during the COVID-19 pandemic, having the support of mentors and a community of founders and ventures that are going through similar stages of development has been both reassuring and exciting,” she shared.
The Aspect Student Accelerator Programme (ASAP) Demo Day will bring together social impact ventures, investors, entrepreneurs, students, staff, and alumni from the UK's Aspect network and around the world. Catch some of the UK's finest social-impact and social entrepreneurship talents.
TAYO offers simple, rewarding, financial education and management tools for migrant workers via a mobile app and an online community. Unlike other financial services, TAYO speaks migrants’ language by designing tools specifically for them, in order to address their particular needs, and meet migrants where they are. TAYO is helping migrants break out of the cycles of debt and financial vulnerability.
