The bootcamp for female entrepreneurs

What happens when you put a bunch of female entrepreneurs through an intense learning program to fast-track their business success?

Can you use their stories to demonstrate what it really takes to build a global tech company?

BlueChilli is currently finding out with its SheStarts program.

Having recently announced their lineup of ten women selected to participate in the program, they’re now running a documentary series following their journeys. Episode one takes a look at their initial shortlist of 20 founders, who are put through a vapid acceleration program and begin the very tense process of pitching their ideas.

For some the founders, it’s the first time they’ve left behind day jobs and other responsibilities to enter the startup world. It’s a reality check to see if their idea can be game-changing enough to go global.

Check out episode one here, including a few excellent tips for all startups.
