The Vermont Center for Emerging Technologies Female Founders StartHere Challenge is a pop-up startup pitch event offering $25k in cash prizes. This competition highlights the impact of women-led companies, and increases access to capital and supporting resources for local female-founded startups and ventures. The event is made possible by the generous support of the Vermont Technology Council, Hinda and Joel Miller, the Vermont Community Foundation, the Vermont Women’s Fund, Middlebury College’s Innovation Hub, and Hotel Vermont. Presenting entrepreneurs will benefit from the deep experiences of the three judges: Hinda Miller, Founder of Deforest Concepts and Jogbra; Mary Cullinane, Partner at Community Barn Ventures; and Lucie Ide, Founder of Rimidi and alumna of Middlebury College.
