Litesprite selected for Equitable Innovations Accelerator cohort
Litesprite is among 10 tech startup founders who will form the inaugural cohort and receive up to $100K in philanthropic funding.
“The success of these first founders is key to dismantling the barriers faced by founders in the Washington tech scene, will support the continued ability of Find Ventures to repeat this program, and will create a new wealth system for the communities of these founders,” said Elizabeth Scallon, Founder and Board Chair of Find Ventures.
This program is directly aligned with the Washington State Department of Commerce's focus and investment in an equitable economic recovery. The Accelerator is one of Commerce’s Safe Start projects that are supported in part by a grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration.
“Washington state’s culture of innovation is on full display in this inaugural cohort of promising tech entrepreneurs. Commerce is proud to support the first-of-its-kind Equitable Innovation Accelerator here, and look forward to seeing these founders blaze the trail for more to come,” said Commerce Director Lisa Brown.
