Hey, DMV-area female founders — here’s an opportunity to perfect that pitch, and possibly win a $20,000 cash prize.
The Vinetta Project┬áin D.C., the District-based branch of the NYC-born collective that seeks to close the gender-based VC funding gap, launched a 2016 Venture Challenge on Wednesday. The competition will run March through July — interested startups should put in an application now to be selected for the semifinal stage.
Learn more about the challenge, and apply, here. Read up on The Vinetta Project in this recent Technical.ly profile.
