Founded in 2011 by Angela Benton, NewME has accelerated hundreds of entrepreneurs through our online platform, residential “boot-camp” accelerators, and equity portfolio. We pioneered diversity in Silicon Valley by focusing on helping entrepreneurs identify strengths from their non-traditional backgrounds and leveraging them in business. We’ve helped hundreds of entrepreneurs build better businesses some of whom have raised venture capital funding ($20+MM to be exact).

Our equity portfolio is made up of the most talented entrepreneurs in our network. These portfolio companies are a mix of entrepreneurs from our previous 12-week residential accelerator and new investments made into select NewME member companies. Learn more about our investments here.
