MergeLane MergeLane, a business accelerator for startup companies that have at least one female in leadership. They are based in Boulder Colorado, but only require teams to be in based Boulder for 3 of the 12-week program. It's a mentorship-driven program that provides investment, curriculum targeting the most critical early-stage business issues, personal coaching and a wide network of mentors and investors.
Accelerator / Incubator
Headquartered in Boulder, Colorado, MergeLane is an accelerator targeting women-led companies. Our goal is to increase access to the three game changers for early stage companies: accelerators, mentors and venture funding.
Our motivation is two-fold. First, there are far fewer women in startups than we would expect. We believe diverse companies are stronger companies, and we want to help narrow the gap. Second, data overwhelmingly shows that venture-backed, female-run companies produce higher returns.
This investment thesis and our belief in diversity propel our commitment to MergeLane. We feel compelled to promote exceptional women leaders and the companies they run until it is no longer necessary. We want to make MergeLane obsolete.
Applications are open September 1st - November 23rd 2015 and will be reviewed on a rolling basis. The 2016 program will run Feb 1- April 22nd 2016. Apply at https://www.f6s.com/mergelane2016accelerator/apply
