WarwickTECH is a student-led angel fund backing founders from Warwick University. We were founded in 2014 on the notion that Warwick University needed a space for technical and non-technical undergraduates to come together and build. We've since built a tribe of developers, designers, operators, and product-leaders who are the bedrock of Warwick's tech hub and have gone on start their own ventures with the likes of Entrepreneur First, Zinc.vc, Dream Assembly, and YES!Delft who have invested in the likes of Magic Pony (acquired by Twitter) and AtlasML (a Warwick startup acquired by Facebook).
