     To address the venture capital gap faced by women-led companies in the southeastern United States, GuideWell Innovation is hosting a 10-week scale-up accelerator. It’s for Southeast-based health-tech or medical device companies with at least one female founder, and the deadline to apply is just a week away.

    For the summer 2019 cohort, GuideWell Innovation partnered with Springboard Enterprises, a venture catalyst that accelerates the growth of entrepreneurial companies led by women through access to essential resources and a global community of experts. Since launching its first program in 2000, Springboard has worked with 769 women who have raised $9.5B in capital and resulting in 19 IPOs and 190 M&A exits, the company said.
