Eager to learn more about the new MergeLane accelerator program that starts on February 2, 2015?
We are eager for you to learn about it as well. And we’re looking forward to meeting you. Join us for an evening info session — MergeLane Monday — in Boulder, Colorado. The first MM is October 20th at 6:30pm in Boulder.
We’re also excited to share that the MergeLane Application is live! Apps are due December 1st. If you are a scalable startup with traction and one female executive team member, we look forward to your application. If you know companies that fit this description anywhere in the US, we want to hear from them.
MergeLane is a 12-week program, but teams need only be in town for the first two weeks and the last week of the program. The mid weeks will be remote, and we’re hopeful that this schedule allows teams across the US with obligations at home to fit the program into their lives.
Join us Monday, October 20th from 6:30 – 8:00pm to learn more and to have a chance to connect with the MergeLane team and ask all the questions you can muster.
To join us, please email info [at] mergelane [dot] com, and we’ll share the location. Mentors and investors, you are also welcome.
If you can’t make this one, our next MergeLane Monday is on November 10th at 6:30 pm or you can join us for an active entrepreneur / investor hike on November 14th.

I’ve made a decision to take a break from speaking engagements that focus topically on women, women in startups, investing in women, women as leaders, and the rest. This includes events that may not be topically focused on women but are part of something called a “women’s track.” Here's why.Read more ➞
