Say Hello to It Takes a Village Cohort #8!

The Orientation has come and gone, and our first lesson lab of our Fall cohort has completed! It is now time to welcome another ground-breaking, innovative and diverse group of co-founders to the 8th cohort of the It Takes A Village Pre-Accelerator! These founders have some big shoes to fill but we know that they are more than capable of living up to the hype!

Our team’s diversity and inclusion initiative emphasizes the importance of supporting diverse perspectives and inclusive work environments in technology. The It Takes A Village Pre-Accelerator is becoming one of the nation’s most prestigious programs for pre-seed startups, led by women and people of color. Some of our past alumni wins, continued success, notable sponsorships, and recap of the previous cohort can be found here.

The selection process becomes more and more difficult every year, but we are happy to introduce everyone to the rockstars that represent Cohort #8!

We have curated a unique group of startups led by women and people of color to help them along their entrepreneurial journey this Spring. Check them out! (Left to Right)
