Turning Word Into Action: Kicking off DreamIt Athena

by Karen Griffith Gryga, Managing Partner of DreamIt Funds

For all the talk about the unique challenges female founders face, there’s been precious little action. Until now.

With nearly four years of experience increasing the diversity in the tech industry through our DreamIt Access program (in partnership with Comcast) and with women comprising fully 1/4 of our senior team, DreamIt was ready, willing, and able to tackle the challenge.

In a phone interview with DreamIt Ventures Managing Director Jason Hardebeck, he noted that the accelerator has added new partners — University of Maryland in Baltimore, including its medical school, and The Abell Foundation.

He added that DreamIt’s Baltimore headquarters would be in Power Plant Live! in Mosaic Building 113. It will be an anchor tenant at the 16,000 square foot shared workspace facility in the Inner Harbor.

Here’s a brief look at the six companies taking part in the healthcare accelerator’s four month program:
