The mission of Women’s startup Lab is to empower female founders to be strong leaders, to create powerful startups and to influence and shape the world though their companies, using collaboration, community and innovation.
Our two week program focuses on powerful customer discovery to inform decision making, leadership development to increase effectiveness and compelling story telling to achieve enrollment around the company vision. We immerse founders in Silicon Valley startup site visits, coaching sessions, workshops, and pitch reviews that are designed to increase the speed of experimentation and understanding of the path to product market fit. The program is differentiated for both early and advanced companies and tuition includes access to six months of resources after the accelerator.
