There are additional bonuses to taking the leap and submitting an application:

1. When you complete a Ready Set Raise application, you will also be reviewed for Female Founders Alliance membership. If you are eligible, we will waive the membership application fee and admit you to our private Founders Network.
2. Applicants can enjoy one free month of coworking at any WeWork office nationally.

Program Highlights:
- 4 weeks remote, 2 weeks in Seattle at the beginning and end of the program for “immersion weeks.” Unlike other accelerators, founders won’t have to uproot their lives to participate. During remote weeks, you’ll have access to a free WeWork hot desk membership.
- Childcare is provided during immersion weeks. Limit to one child per company during business hours and subsidized childcare for any additional kids or hours.
- Our Investor Showcase will feature vetted investors from diverse geographies who are known to invest in women and non-binary-founded startups.
- It’s all non-dilutive. Instead, we request an option to participate in participant’s future rounds.

Please note: Applicant emails will be added to our newsletter so you can stay in the loop with what FFA is up to.
