Past Programs

1O.1O.1O has served as the inspiration for seven ventures from past cohorts that have raised millions in funding, including BurstIQ, Apostrophe Health, Concert Health, Microlyze, Upsuite, Recalibrate Solutions, and Hey Herbie. We have challenged and encouraged these leaders, who have gone on to create the global entrepreneurial network, Women WhoStartup and have assumed key positions in other entrepreneurial organizations, including Singularity University Ventures and Techstars Sustainability (with The Nature Conservancy). And we have engaged 50 serial entrepreneurs, more than 60 Validators and more than 100 Ninjas.
