Rent the Runway and UBS have joined forces to launch Project Entrepreneur, a venture competition and educational program designed to provide women entrepreneurs with the tools to build high-growth, high-impact businesses.
In addition, Project Entrepreneur will host a series of free educational summits for attendees to share their business ideas, starting in New York, Austin and Washington DC.
Project Entrepreneur’s venture competition is open to women entrepreneurs who are beyond the ideation stage and intend to build a high-growth company using an existing prototype or beta technology.
The top 200 finalists in the competition will be invited to attend a two-day Entrepreneurship Workshop weekend in New York City in April 2016 where they will receive targeted support for their companies.
The workshop will culminate in a live pitch where three winning teams will be selected by a panel of highly successful entrepreneurs and investors to receive a cash prize of $10,000 each and a spot in a five-week accelerator program hosted at Rent the Runway.
