• Diverse Female Entrepreneurs are accelerated here.

  • Hello sprinters, who are you and what do you do?

    Sprinters was founded on the idea of creating a unified community of Female Entrepreneurs to empower, inspire and accelerate the growth of women led startups.


    We are passionate about advancing your journey into entrepreneurship and are committed to growing an inclusive community.


    We believe it is possible to turn an idea into a reality.


    We also believe it is possible to grow your startup and IPO at $1 billion+


    We understand the startup rollercoaster is stressful.


    But it does not have to be this way.


    We set up an online hub of tools, resources and a network of experts ranging from VC's to Seasoned Mentors and Business Experts connecting them to you, The Female Entrepreneur.

    To sprint: { to race or move at full speed, especially for a short distance, as in running, rowing, etc }
