Project W Presents
TECH EQUITY HUB
Unlocking the Potential of Black and Latinx Female Founders
July 11 – October 3, 2023
The Tech Equity Hub is a virtual accelerator that provides a cohort of 8 to 10 Black and Latinx female founders the tools, resources, connections, and funding they need to build successful tech companies.
During the 3–month program the cohort will engage in workshops, 1:1 mentor sessions, and cohort community building events. Our expert faculty and accomplished mentors will cover product design and development, marketing and sales, business strategy and finance, legal, fundraising and leadership development.
At the conclusion of the program, we will bring the founders to New York City for a full day of activities, including a live pitch evening, networking with the Project W community, and quality time with the members of the cohort.
Who should apply?
Black and Latinx female founders who:
Have demonstrated proof of concept for their solution
Are available to participate in two to three workshops, mentor sessions and community events each week
new customers acquired
pitch competition wins
What Our Cohort is Saying
Project W’s Tech Equity Hub has been the most effective accelerator to me as a female founder and woman of color. Each session was curated with speakers who were so thoughtful in their delivery and objectives. I highly recommend any founder who identifies as a woman of color apply for the next cohort for invaluable information and lifelong relationships.
[The Tech Equity Hub] was exactly what I needed before I knew what I needed. Twice we came across challenges with a client, and either the week prior or the week after [the Tech Equity Hub] provided me with experts who spoke to our issue. As an entrepreneur you can go from being the legal department, sales, HR, marketing and back again in one week. Access to the mentors, materials, and experts was phenomenal……

Project W is hands down one of the top-tier pre-seed accelerators I have participated in during my startup journey. Experiencing workshops led by legal industry expert professionals was incredibly valuable for me. The program was critical for my progress towards launch.
