The 25 aspiring entrepreneurs who will be part of the Women Entrepreneurs Bootcamp have been announced. Hosted by Communitech and Google for Entrepreneurs #40Forward, the two-part bootcamp helps female founders home in on validating and efficiently raising their business ideas.
The bootcamp runs from Aug. 19-21 and Sept. 23-25. It culminates in a pitch competition for seed funding of $15,000 for first place, $7,000 for second place and $3,000 for third place.
To qualify, attendees were required to demonstrate a technology-based product idea in hardware or software (with potential for IP ownership), have received less than $100K in funding, and have a female founding team member.
