A Start-Up Program for Women in Mobile Tech
When it comes to programs that nurture new start-ups, women often don’t make the cut. A new “start-up accelerator” hopes to combat that gender disparity in at least one booming market: mobile technology.
Women Innovate Mobile opened its application today to start-ups with a woman founder or co-founder and a product that is related to mobile. The accelerator will offer two to five start-ups free New York office space, mentoring and coaching, access to venture capitalists and other investors in addition to $18,000 in seed funding, $10,000 worth of product development and design support, and $10,000 worth of mobile marketing promotions.
