One month ago, Chicago’s essential technology incubator, “1871,” announced that their WiSTEM organization (Women in Science Technology Engineering and Math) will begin their Spring “cohort” program, the first of three in 2017, and their fourth one overall. The customized program, that is designed to accelerate and cultivate opportunities for women in technology, will have 14 companies participating in the 12-week mentoring program – covering topics designed to increase business acumen and relationship building. The program concludes with a Showcase event where the businesses will get an opportunity to pitch to the tech and investor communities.
