Techstars Founder Catalyst Program in Partnership with J.P. Morgan Announces Spring 2022 Cohort

Apr 07, 2022

Techstars, the worldwide network that helps entrepreneurs succeed, and J.P. Morgan, a leading global financial services firm, are pleased to announce the 20 women-led ventures selected for the second women-focused cohort of the Techstars Founder Catalyst Program. Techstars, in partnership with J.P. Morgan’s Innovation Economy business and the firm’s Women on the Move and Office of LGBT+ Affairs initiatives, will support the new Founder Catalyst program and are proud to support this diverse cohort of women entrepreneurs who are all highly motivated to support each other’s success.

Based in the greater Washington D.C. area, this experience will provide women entrepreneurs — including lesbian, bisexual, and transgender women — valuable startup education, mentorship, community, and access to Techstars’ vast network. This second Founder Catalyst Program comes on the heels of a successful first program in Atlanta during the fall of 2021 where 20 women-led ventures made incredible progress taking their companies to the next level.

The Techstars Founder Catalyst program in partnership with J.P. Morgan will run from March through May 2022.
