Meet the eight new SheStarts startups primed to create a huge social impact
Ten emerging founders from eight startups have been selected for the opportunity to take part in round two of BlueChilli’s impressive SheStarts accelerator program.
The program, which launched in 2016, works to boost and support female-led tech businesses in Australia and create new opportunities for growth. All of the founders selected to take part will receive a life-changing package including $25,000 pre-seed capital as well as more than $100,000 in software credits, accounting, financial, and legal services from the program’s partners: MYOB, Microsoft, LinkedIn and ANZ.
