A Pre-Accelerator Focused on Championing Diversity in the Tech Startup Ecosystem
Launched september 19, 2016 at Galvanize
Our aim = to address the lack of diversity in the tech startup ecosystem.
Our mission = to help foster the growth and development of ethnically diverse and women-led tech companies.
Our 12-week pre-accelerator program will help founders ensure their companies are built for success. We provide teams with top-notch, comprehensive programming and connect them with an extensive network of mentors and investors plus the critical resources they need to turn their idea into a high-growth, scalable business.
DivInc offers immersive programming, weekly "accelerate your growth" workshops led by notable tech founders and investors, pitch coaching and investment readiness.
Work in a collaborative, non-competitive environment with weekly networking/volunteer opportunities, team dinners and access to a strong alumni network.
Get matched with mentors for weekly meetings, gain one-on-one access to investors and leverage our onsite entrepreneur-in-residence throughout the program.
