Apple also shares that only those women who female-founded, co-founded or led and have at least one woman on the development team are only eligible for this program. The company also informed that they have started accepting applications but the program’s pilot session will start at the beginning of January 2019.
 
In a statement Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, states that "Apple is committed to helping more women assume leadership roles across the tech sector and beyond. We’re proud to help cultivate female leadership in the app development community with the new Apple Entrepreneur Camp, and we are inspired both by the incredible work that’s already happening, and what’s sure to come."
 
Further, the company discussed the Entrepreneur Camp in which the sessions will be conducted on a quarterly basis, with a cohort of 20 app companies accepted for each round. In the pilot session total of 10 companies are included.
 
Once Apple accepted the application, each company will have the opportunity to send their three attendees to Cupertino, California for a two-week immersive program at Apple’s campus. The immersive program includes one-on-one code-level assistance with Apple engineers, design sessions, technology and App Store marketing, as well as ongoing guidance and support from an Apple Developer representative.
 
Those women entrepreneurs that face challenges in obtaining funding, support, and training in the VC landscape will receive $1.9 billion in funding in 2017 as compared to $83.1 billion for men. Notwithstanding, such obstacles, women-owned businesses are growing twice faster than the US national average than technology startups led by men.
