The accelerator (like every other Orange Fab France program) is aimed at helping women founders or co-founders of startups form business partnerships with market lines from Orange or Orange partners in France and abroad. The startup’s management will undergo training and mentorship during the acceleration phase with the support of internal and external mentors. The program will also elevate startups and encourage them to go international.
Startups would be selected over the summer and they would be chosen based on; a female founder or co-founder, the marketed/marketable product or service put forward by the female entrepreneurs which can cut across any area, innovative solutions in the digital world.
