Tech Squares Lab 100 Minority Women Initiative: BuiltxWomen

I was casually strolling along my Twitter feed when I noticed the #BuiltxWomen. So me, the always curious blogger decided to check it out.  I’m glad I did, because I found out about this amazing initiative by Tech Squares Lab out of Atlanta, GA.

Get this, the BuiltxWomen initiative is meant to “increase the high-growth percentage of minority female-founded startups”.   There is an application process. If selected, the recipient gets to work for 6 months on a part-time basis out of the Tech Squares Lab. “While in the program, they will participate in biweekly learning labs helping them to do everything from find a co-founder to developing the product.”

According to CNN Money,  black women made up only 4% of  the 2200 tech start-up companies in 2016.  That’s why this initiative’s  focus on African-American and Hispanic women is so important.
