By Debbie Landa (Co-Founder, GrowLab) GrowLab is a “startup boot camp” for entrepreneurs whose companies receive up to $25,000 in seed funding, four months of mentorship, free office space and a $150,000 in follow-on funding upon graduation of the program. The first three months of the program are in Vancouver and the fourth is in San Francisco.
Deadline for GrowLab applications is June 15, 2011 and the program begins on August 15th, 2011.
GrowLab is on the lookout for the great entrepreneurs. We've had a good number of applicants so far but I would love to see more female entrepreneurs apply for GrowLab. I look forward to the day when over 50% of our applicants come from women instead of only 5%.
