Event Details

Women-led private technology companies generate 35% higher returns on investment, and when backed by venture capital earn 12% higher revenues than those led by men. Yet women launch only 3% of high growth tech startups.* While women account for over half of those pursuing bachelor’s degrees overall, they represent only 20% of computer science degrees.

Through the Upstart accelerator we want to change the game. We’ll recruit more women ready to take risks, solve big problems, and become startup founders. We’ll then provide them the resources that increase their chances of success.

Join us as we welcome the innaugural cohort of this pioneering program with a night of networking and refreshments.

The Upstart accelerator is brought to you by Start Co. in partnership with Baker Donelson, Archer Malmo, The Marston Group, and Mosaik Solutions.  

This event is generously sponsored by CB Richard Ellis Memphis.
