    Description:

    MergeLane discovers, accelerates and invests in exceptional women and the companies they run. MergeLane aims to bring more women into the startup community and achieve investor returns through the acceleration of high-growth, gender-diverse companies. Founded by Elizabeth Kraus and Sue Heilbronner, MergeLane offers a 12-week program. Companies must have at least one female in a leadership role. The program is industry-agnostic, but startups need to have some level of traction. MergeLane requires only three weeks of residency in Boulder in hopes of accommodating founders that can't relocate for a full three months. All MergeLane participating companies receive an investment of $20,000. This initial investment, along with the wide range of in-kind services provided as part of MergeLane, are offered in exchange for 6% of common stock in the participating companies. Participants may also receive a larger investment after they are accepted into the program.
