Project Entrepreneur Accelerator: What Will They Build?
Today three female-founded startups – Cake, Full Harvest, and Komae – will begin Project Entrepreneur’s five-week accelerator program at Rent the Runway’s headquarters in New York. The companies were selected as winners from PE’s pitch competition in April – the culmination of our Weekend Intensive, which brought together 150 female founded start-ups for 2 days of actionable workshops, keynote speakers and practice pitch sessions. Learn more about the Cake, Full Harvest, and Komae.
Over the course of the accelerator, the founders will visit local tech companies, meet with venture capitalists and entrepreneurs, as well as experts from Rent the Runway and UBS to gain insight and advice on topics critical to building a sustainable business.
We’d love for you to be a part of this journey and watch how these women learn more about how they can build up their passions to be sustainable. Here’s how you can join!
