The applications for the next Apple Entrepreneur Camp for Female Founders and Developers have opened.
The Apple Entrepreneur Camp was established with the goal of supporting entrepreneurs who are underrepresented in technology as they build the next generation of cutting-edge apps, and to form a global network that encourages the pipeline and longevity of founders and developers of all backgrounds.
The heart of Apple Entrepreneur Camp is an intensive technology lab working one-on-one with Apple experts and engineers to significantly accelerate your app.
The event will see participants hear from Apple executives and leaders on a variety of topics such as the latest advances in machine learning and augmented reality.
Applicants will have the opportunity to connect as a cohort to discuss challenges specific to their community, and form relationships with their fellow attendees.
At the conclusion of the lab, they will have the opportunity to present their progress, get feedback, and chat with some of Apple’s most senior leaders.
In addition, Apple Entrepreneur Camp consists of an immersive technology lab, as well as mentorship, education, and support.
