History of TechPixies

Joy set up TechPixies in 2015 off the back of Government Equalities funding which helped an initial pilot group of 12 women return to work. Following the success of the pilot, TechPixies won a ‘Grow it’ Award from UnLtd to help scale the programme and launched a successful crowdfunding campaign that garnered a visit from the Prime Minister.

In 2017, TechPixies won Enterprise Nation’s Female Startup of the Year and in 2018, TechPixies won the Women in Business Startup of the Year. Most recently, TechPixies was featured in Stella Magazine and has raised £150,000 in order to scale their programme across the country. In April 2019, they were mentioned in Tech Nation’s Report as ‘one to watch’ in the EdTech space.
