Diversity, inclusion & innovation - NetApp's startup program for female founders
November 19, 2020
Today it was a great pleasure to speak with my friend and work colleague Madhurima Argawal. We both work at NetApp, where she is a Director of Engineering Programs and Leader of NetApp’s Excellerator, which is a startup accelerator about to start its seventh cohort.
In this conversation we will explore the startup program and I am most excited to talk with Madhurima about NetApp’s new ExcellerateHER program which is a startup program for female founders.
Having founded her own startup provides a good basis for NetApp’s Madhurima Argawal to join me at the Startups' Roundtable, but that barely scratches the surface.
We also talk through elements of NetApp's startup accelerators:
- Excellerator program is into its seventh cohort
- ExcellerateHER is about to launch and supports female founders - a significant expression of diversity, inclusion and innovation
An entrepreneur at heart and in reality, her blend of strategy, innovation and business acumen set us up for a great discussion.
