Welcome the 6th It Takes a Village Pre-Accelerator Cohort

August 5, 2020

This Fall 2020, Atlanta Tech Village is welcoming a ground-breaking, innovative and diverse group of co-founders in the 6th cohort of the It Takes A Village Pre-Accelerator! From a solution that connects those living with chronic illness to physicians certified in medicinal use of marijuana, to a women-led, subscription service that provides affordable access to infant clothing, these founders are poised to disrupt their markets! Our team’s diversity and inclusion initiative emphasizes the importance of supporting diverse perspectives and inclusive work environments in technology. The It Takes A Village Pre-Accelerator is becoming one of nations most prestigious programs for pre-seed startups led by women and people of color. Some of our past alumni wins, continued success, notable sponsorships, and recap of the previous cohort can be found here. We are proud to introduce the rockstars that represent Cohort #6!

We have curated a unique group of startups led by women and people of color to help them along their entrepreneurial journey this Fall; ’20. Check ’em out! (Left to Right)

To make a real change it takes perseverance and consistency which is way we are excited to build on our commitment to Diversity and Inclusion. This 16-Week program is designed to prepare underrepresented founders to successfully get to the next level which is defined as gaining traction by acquiring paid customers, receiving a seed investment, and/or earning a spot in an accelerator program. By providing an inclusive community for these diverse group of founders, we believe providing direct access to community, curriculum, and capital will help build and grow the next generation of sustainable startups and diversity in tech.Stay Tuned! – You don’t want to miss the amazing things in store for this group.
