What Our Founders Said
"I LOVED my group. I looked forward to that every time and loved how practical it was! I learned so much and had women in the group meet with me outside to answer specific questions."
– Sarah Jacobson,
Founder of Sage Care
We have answers.
Am I the right fit for Galvanizer?
We are looking for female founders who are working full-time on their ventures and are either currently enrolled in or recently graduated from an MBA program. Exceptional non-MBA founders will also be considered (YOU are EXCEPTIONAL, please apply)! Galvanizer is best-suited for entrepreneurs who are past the exploration phase and all-in on building and testing their business model and product.
What is the application process like?
All founders must complete a written application by May 30, 2021 at 11:59pm PT. Selected entrepreneurs will be invited to a 20-minute phone call in mid-June to learn more about your business and see if Galvanizer is the right fit at this time.
How much does Galvanizer cost?
Galvanizer is $175 for the summer (~$25/week). If the cost of the program presents any type of financial challenge for a founder, fee waivers and scholarships are readily available.
