A startup accelerator launching in Florida this year is dedicated to increasing diversity in the tech industry.
Innovators Magazine regularly features prominent accelerators worldwide, to showcase the work they’re doing and to alert potential applicants to their existence. And the TechDiversity Accelerator in Tampa Bay merits a big mention. Thanks to a collaboration between non-profit, Tampa Bay Wave, which works to support early stage companies in the area grow and make an impact in the market; and the Nielsen Foundation, the accelerator is walking the talk when it comes to providing opportunities for all.
The three-month platform is open to startups which are at least 51% run by ‘a minority; woman; veteran; or lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender person or combination thereof’.
