The Company Lab’s latest iteration of 48Hour Launch kicks off Friday, April 5, with its first-ever female-focused startup weekend spotlighting women entrepreneurs with e-commerce startups and ideas.
The Company Lab’s celebration of women in entrepreneurship will include a special Demo Night announcement regarding a new female-focused funding concept. The Chattanooga-based initiative will be led by several of the city’s prominent female professionals, whose goal is to encourage the continued success of women entrepreneurs across the region.
The Lab’s “Female Founders” event kicked off March 28 with a series of preview pitches and gets under way in earnest on Friday at the Lab’s space at 55 Main St.
On March 28, selected founders presented a sneak peek of their ideas to a crowd of creatives, developers and business professionals as they begin crafting their teams for this weekend’s event. Concepts range from web apps to educational tools to brick-and-mortar retail shops.
From April 5-7, founders and their teams will strategize, build and launch in anticipation of Demo Night. On Sunday, teams will present their startup concepts to the public. Three winners will receive sponsor-donated prize packages consisting of valuable businesses services.
