Apple launches new Entrepreneurship Camp for women with app-driven businesses
Soon, women will have the chance to attend a new Entreprenuer Camp hosted in Cupertino that is designed to help app-driven businesses that are ownered or stewarded by women.
The camp affords attendees a multititude of benefits, including sending three partipants out to Cupertino, CA for a two-week program with design, technology, marketing, and one-on-one coding time with Apple engineers to help them be successful. Two tickets to WWDC and a complimentary year in the Apple Developer program are also included if accepted.
The new camp will be available four times a year, with 20 app-driven companies admitted each time, starting in January of 2019. The first round will only include ten companies as Apple ramps up the program.
"Apple is committed to helping more women assume leadership roles across the tech sector and beyond. We're proud to help cultivate female leadership in the app development community with the new Apple Entrepreneur Camp," said Apple CEO Tim Cook. "We're inspired both by the incredible work that's already happening, and what's sure to come," he added.
Those would like to apply can do so on Apple's site.
Also on Monday, Apple also introduced new Hour of Code guides as well as opened up registrations for Everyone Can Code sessions.
