Transparent Collective has opened applications for Batch 10 of its TC Early Stage and Showcase program, and it will be held in person between March 24 to March 28, 2024. The application is open to early-stage founders of color and womxn founders within the US.
Transparent Collective is a non-profit organization that focuses on breaking down the barriers that affect the success of minority founders at the early stages of their startups.
Founded by James Norman, and Adrian Walker, two friends, who attended the same University, and ended up together in the Bay Area, pursuing their dreams. TC was established to see that founders of color, and womxn founders do not go through the hardship they went through as hardworking startup founders in the Bay Area.
Selected founders will have the opportunity to participate in the week-long program which includes, a one-on-one mentorship, pitch coaching, founder education, and the opportunity to connect with top-notch investors, accelerators, advisors, and other founders with the TC community.
The week-long program will end with a showcase, an opportunity for selected founders to pitch a curated audience of investors and members of the Transparent Collective community.
The program has been a success since its inception when the first batch of founders went through the program in early 2016.
All applications must be submitted by February 16, 2024, to be considered for the TC Early Stage and Showcase Program in March 2024.
