Angel network The Firehood and nonprofit Elevate have introduced the inaugural cohort of their Women+ Entrepreneur Incubator, aiding women in tech.
Notable participants include funded companies like Ora Medical, Permalution, and PragmaClin. Ora Medical raised $300,000 at Startupfest, backed by The Firehood and others. Permalution took home $100,000 from Firehood’s Women in Tech award, while PragmaClin secured $20,000.
The eight-week program aims to bolster Canadian women’s access to venture capital through workshops, mentorship, and Elevate’s tech conference pitch opportunity. This initiative aligns with the Women Entrepreneurship Strategy’s Inclusive Women Venture Capital Initiative.
