The Firehood, an angel network that focuses on supporting women in the technology sector, and Toronto-based nonprofit Elevate have unveiled the 37 startups participating in the first cohort of its joint incubator for women entrepreneurs, the Women+ Entrepreneur Incubator.

The roster of participants includes companies that have previously received funding from The Firehood, including Ora MedicalPermalution, and PragmaClin.

According to Elevate, the eight-week program is designed to increase Canadian women entrepreneurs’ access to venture capital funding. It will offer a variety of workshops, one-on-one mentorship, advisory services, and connections with investors.

Participants will also get the chance to pitch at the Elevate’s tech conference this year, taking place from Sept. 26 to 28, for the opportunity to win up to $100,000 in cash from The Firehood’s angel investors. (Read more here)
