The women-led companies taking part in the accelerator program will be announced in early 2014.
Springboard Enterprises is a global not-for-profit organisation where entrepreneurs, investors and industry experts meet to build great women-led businesses.
The 537 women-led companies that have participated in a Springboard Accelerator over the past 13 years have raised more than $6 billion in financing, including 10 initial public offerings (IPOs) and legions of high value mergers and acquisitions.
Notably, more than 80% of these companies are still in business generating billions of dollars in revenues and creating tens of thousands of jobs.
