Six startups selected to participate in the MasterCard Women in Entrepreneurship program

Back in March, MasterCard and Ryerson’s DMZ teamed up and announced the “MasterCard Women in Entrepreneurship program.” This gave the opportunity for six women-led startups to scale their businesses and receive $5,000 in funding as well as $5,000 in additional resources, plus access to work out of the DMZ in Toronto.

MasterCard announced earlier this week that over 50 applications were received and the six winning startups have been selected. We’ve written about a number of them and starting their placement on June 9th at the DMZ will be Peekapak, Obsidian Solutions, Mywedhelper, Ambience Data, SnapEDA Inc., and Think Dirty.

Below is a quick breakdown of each:
