Accepted into TechWomen Rising Accelerator
The Tampa Bay Wave on Wednesday announced its inaugural cohort for the 2020 TechWomen Rising Accelerator, funded by JPMorgan Chase. We’re proud to announce that MARVL is one of the thirteen promising female-led technology companies from around the state of Florida chosen for this prestigious program.
The TechWomen Rising Accelerator was created to empower female-led technology startups in the region, expanding the impact of entrepreneurship through inclusion and promoting venture capital investments in female-founded companies.
“While women are increasingly at the forefront of innovation in tech, they still struggle to receive ample funding and support for their companies,” said Michele Grace, South division director for Chase Business Banking. “The TechWomen Rising Accelerator program helps women entrepreneurs in Florida overcome these challenges and provides the boost, encouragement, and confidence women need to help bridge the gap between men and women in the startup ecosystem.”
The 90-day TechWomen Rising Accelerator offers companies access to invaluable resources such as a dedicated Cohort Director, one-on-one mentoring with notable tech founders, sales training, pitch coaching and investor introductions in an environment designed to support high-scale growth. TechWomen Rising Accelerator companies will also participate in Wave’s Demo Day at the conclusion of the program in November to pitch their companies to a group of hand-selected investors and business leaders.
