Apple wants to help female founders create apps with free camp

Apple is making a conscious effort to empower women-led/founded businesses with its FREE Entrepreneurship Camp. “Apple is committed to helping more women assume leadership roles across the tech sector and beyond,” CEO Tim Cook said in a statement released by Apple.

To be eligible for the program, a company must be female-founded, female-co-founded, or female-led, the company says. It also must have at least one woman on the app development team. It must also have a working or prototype app, and a desire to use Apple technology to further its mission.

Startups selected for the program can each send three participants to attend, although one must be a female developer, and one must be a female founder, co-founder, or CEO. The program lasts two weeks and includes one-on-one work with Apple engineers, as well as sessions on design, technology, and App Store marketing. After the program is over, participants will get a one-year membership in the Apple Developer Program, access to the Apple Developer Camp Alumni Forum, and two tickets to the following year’s Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) for a female founder or CEO, plus a female developer.

Camp runs from January 28 to February 8, 2019, with representatives from 10 companies. Future two-week sessions will begin on April 1, July 22, and October 14, with 20 companies in attendance.
