Announcing Atto Australia 2019's inaugural batch


Atto is a new, online-driven pre-accelerator program designed for female founders by female founders. It helps founders launch tech companies in an independent, scalable, and sustainable manner. Applications for our first batch opened in December closed in late January – we were absolutely blown away with the quality of the founders and their companies. It was very hard to narrow down 10 companies for the inaugural batch! Thanks to everyone who submitted an application – we hope to run more batches in the future.

While we received many applications from around the globe, including large numbers from North America, we have focused on Australia as a region for the first batch. Without ado, please five the 10 startups and list of founders selected. A huge congratulations to the teams!
