July 27, 2017 — DLA Piper and Shoobx co-sponsor The Pitch Silicon Valley and announce special programs for companies with women founders.
DLA Piper and Shoobx co-sponsored The Pitch Silicon Valley, an event aimed at addressing new trends in startups. The event featured panel discussions on consumer products and artificial intelligence, as well as pitches from several companies who have been featured in the Pitch section of the Silicon Valley Business Journal.
In advance of the consumer products panel, composed of all women investors, DLA Piper and Shoobx each took the opportunity to announce special discount programs to support women founders. Shoobx will offer companies with at least one woman founder free access to Shoobx for a year, and DLA Piper will discount its startup package for these companies. Details of the Shoobx offer can be found here.
“Everyone who works with startups knows the process of starting and growing a company is often more challenging for founders in certain demographic groups. Shoobx is dedicated to empowering entrepreneurs, and we’re excited to help level the playing field for all startups. Supporting women founders is one step in our efforts to do just that,” said Shoobx Founder and CEO Jason Furtado.
