Ycombinator, a technology incubator based in Mountain View and Silicon Valley, is taking applications (http://ycombinator.com/w2009.html) through Friday, October 17th 10pm PST for its winter 2008 incubator cycle. A small group of us are interested in seeing if we can help increase the percentage of women accepted this time around. So–
If you are a woman who is planning to apply to ycombinator for this cycle and you’d like to have some mentoring and support before you submit your application from an experienced woman CEO/executive, there’s a small group of people who are interested in working with you (yes, I am one of them).
To get involved with this group and ideally paired with a mentor, send an email with contact information and information about your proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org; we’ll circulate your information among our team and reach back to you.
If you are mentored, you will receive an hour or more of coaching with a woman exec who has been through a tech incubator program, has been a tech CEO or co-founder or is a VC.
