[fusion_dropcap boxed=”no” boxed_radius=”” class=”” id=”” color=”#e91e63″]O[/fusion_dropcap]ur Accelerator program, based in Silicon Valley, is a leading accelerator for female founders:

  • 4 year track record of success
  • 11 batches graduated, 90+ alumnae
  • $50 million + raised.  # high profile exits.
  • Rated “Exceeds Expectations” by 90% of our alumnae in a post program anonymous survey.

What Makes Us Different:

When you’re doing everything you can and it just isn’t good enough…

You need Hito.  Hito is our unique philosophy, based on the Japanese character made up of two people leaning on one another which means human.

We believe that, “It takes a village to raise a founder.”

We focus our energy and time into helping high potential female founders succeed.  We understand women’s unique challenges and opportunities.

We recognize that for accelerated success, founders need more than just a great startup.  You need a deeper network, expertise and customized help to champion you to next level of visibility and access to funding.  Our accelerator is uniquely suited to deliver that to you.

We are small by design.  You are not one out of 120 startups!  Our small group allows you to dig deeper into your issues and form real connections with influencers and investors who will bring their experience to bear on your startup strategy, funding strategy and negotiating skill to prepare the perfect pitch to gain funding momentum.

Two weeks of intensive workshops:  You will be constantly challenged by your mentors and by your peers to refine your vision, your model and your pitch. While refining your startup in interactive workshops, you are forming relationships with Silicon Valley leaders and mentors who can take you to the next level.  The atmosphere of Hito House allows you to create lasting relationships, invaluable for guidance, introductions and even investment.

Some of Silicon Valley’s greatest minds will be onsite to offer you:

  • Insight, because you don’t know what you don’t know!
  • Real time, relevant advice focused on what matters most to you and your startup now.
  • Their collective wisdom and thoughtful, personal advice, far more worthwhile than 100 hours of “meeting for coffee,” or pitches or YouTube videos.
