Our Mission: What is Women’s Startup Lab?

Our Mission

Women’s Startup Lab is a founder development accelerator in the heart of Silicon Valley whose mission is to catalyze women-run startups and guide them to victory through powerful leadership training, an influential network of coaches and advisors, and the ongoing (lifelong!) support of a community of founder alums.

Our Values

We believe a startup’s success starts with the founder.

We believe in accelerating people, not just products.

We believe in winning through collaboration, and not only by competition.

We believe well-trained, well-supported, and well-networked founders accelerate faster.

We believe in having fun. (Mo-Hitos anyone?!)

We believe women are born leaders and the world needs more of them, damn it.

Building great founders with the power of hito.

Two people leaning on each other make up the symbol of HITO, which means "human" in Japanese. At WSLab, HITO is about people supporting and holding each other accountable for extra-ordinary results - our version of "hitology".
