An initiative of Amex Ventures and Project W, SPARK’s mission is to accelerate the impact made by the next generation of women-led tech companies by unlocking resources and connections designed to take their companies to the next level.
Through SPARK, a series of events to support women founders, participants will connect with and learn from investors at Amex Ventures and subject matter experts at American Express and Project W by participating in Project W’s signature pitch for feedback sessions and Women Entrepreneur’s Boot Camp (WEB).
