Female Founder Program – Winter 2021

The Female Founder Program in the 4thly Startup Accelerator is currently underway. Eleven amazing women running 10 startups across several different sectors and geographies. From a pool of more than 90 applicants, we selected these eleven entrepreneurs on the basis of their smarts, their determination, and their passion for building a successful venture that solves a problem worth solving. For the next six weeks they are immersed together pushing their startups (and themselves) forward. Join us for our Demo Day on March 4th! Register here.
