We are glad to announce #HerPitch in association with Jaarvis Accelerator, a first of its kind initiative to encourage and support women-led startups. HerSaga was founded to empower and inspire more women to startup and HerPitch is a major step towards that.
Hong Kong based Jaarvis Accelerator offers a four-month residential accelerator program where they provide mentorship, office space and access to funding. Together through HerPitch, we intend to provide a platform for women entrepreneurs to nurture their ideas and help them realize their full potential and thus increase the participation of women in startups.
“There should be no gender bias when it comes to startups, that’s why Jaarvis Accelerator is very happy to support HerSaga to launch HerPitch, an event aimed at showcasing the best ideas of female entrepreneurs. Jaarvis Accelerator has already invested in several early stage startups with female co-founders, and we find that female entrepreneurs bring a different approach and perspective to startups.
We are pleased to work with HerSaga to identify potential startups to join our next intake, to further support female entrepreneurship in India.”, said Brett Stevens, Vice President, Jaarvis Accelerator.
A big kudos to Brett and the whole Jaarvis team for supporting our mission of empowering women entrepreneurs and changemakers.
The applications are open and startups with at least one woman co-founder are eligible to apply to this program. Based on the applications, 5-10 startups would be shortlisted for the live pitch on 3rd June and shortlisted startups might get a chance to be a part of the Jaarvis Accelerator’s four months program.
