Simple. We are a residential technology start-up accelerator/incubator for businesses that are led by under-represented minorities in the technology industry. NewME’s mission is to educate, accelerate and empower underrepresented tech entrepreneurs around the world. During our first cycle in the Summer of 2011 we helped 10 minority-led businesses get a step further to success by offering them mentorship, a network of industry players, and in some cases funding.
Our program is…
- 12 Weeks long, twice a year (Feb-May; Aug-Nov)…. You can check out our Schedule or Apply
