Apple announced the launch of a new initiative called The Apple Entrepreneur Camp, on Monday, November 27, 2018. This initiative is designed for supporting women founders who are focused on app development.
The first session, which is free, will hold in January 2019 for two weeks. It is open to women-owned businesses which have developed or in the process of developing an app.
The program will have quarterly sessions for 20 app companies going forward, but the pilot session will select 10 companies.
“We wanted to focus on women who already have an app-driven business, and we don’t require them to have an iOS app,” Apple Senior Director of Worldwide Developer Marketing Esther Hare told Tech Crunch.[Read: How to Start and Launch an Online Business]
After a successful completion of the two-week program, attendees will have access to a year-long membership in the Apple Developer Program, tickets to the next Apple Worldwide Developers Conference and access to the Apple Entrepreneur Camp Alumni Forum.
