The Peterborough Innovation Cluster is now accepting applications for the second cohort for women in STEM & Social Innovation.
Women Breaking Barriers is in search of the next 10 female-led companies pursuing innovative careers through science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) and social innovation in Haliburton County, Peterborough and the Kawarthas.
With targeted training, mentorships, collaboration, and access to funding, Women Breaking Barriers is poised to change the lives of female-led companies. The program is intended for startups with fewer than 10 employees or for those who are just at the idea stage, the program will provide learning, growth, and funding opportunities through a process designed to bring great minds together.
At the end of the 6 month program, each business will have the opportunity to pitch directly to angels investors in the Peterborough Region Angel Network for investment. This will give the companies the chance to not only receive investment but also have direct access to a group of experienced individuals with a wide network.
If you’re ready to carve your own path, this program is for you! Or if you know someone who would be perfect for the Women Breaking Barriers Accelerator Program, forward this to them!
