We will be offering two full scholarships for this program. The scholarships are earmarked for accredited investors who have been traditionally under-represented in the VC industry, especially women and/or ethnic minorities.
We are looking to identify individuals who will use the knowledge learned in the program to build diverse innovation ecosystems in and around their communities.
To qualify, applicants should first fill out the main application form and then submit this additional application using the same email address.
