Apple Entrepreneur Camp

For organizations founded and led by women.

We believe apps for everyone should be made by everyone.

Research shows that women face unique challenges in technology, especially when starting and leading companies. That’s why we created Apple Entrepreneur Camp, for organizations founded and led by women.* Our goal is to help these entrepreneurs as they work on the next generation of cutting-edge apps and to form a global network that encourages the pipeline and longevity of women in technology.

During a two-week technology lab, you’ll receive one-on-one code-level guidance on your app from Apple experts and engineers, as well as mentorship, inspiration, and insights from top Apple leaders. Up to three members of your company may attend, but at least one must be a woman developer, and one must be the woman founder, co-founder, or CEO. The third member of your team may be any gender. After the lab concludes, you’ll get ongoing support and become part of a growing community of other exceptional alumni who can help you build your business.

Unprecedented access to Apple engineers and leaders.

The heart of Apple Entrepreneur Camp is an intensive, hands-on technology lab working one-on-one with Apple experts and engineers to significantly accelerate your app. You’ll also meet with Apple executives and leaders on a variety of topics, such as the latest advances in machine learning and augmented reality. At the conclusion of the lab you’ll have the opportunity to present your progress, get feedback, and chat with some of Apple’s senior women leaders.

One Year of Free Membership

Membership in the Apple Developer Program allows you to submit your apps to the App Store and includes access to beta software, advanced app capabilities, extensive beta testing tools, and app analytics. It also includes the opportunity to get code-level support from Apple engineers during the membership year.

Exceptional Community

You’ll have a network of world-class senior leaders and advocates you can ask for help in building your business and personal network. You’ll also get exclusive access to Apple Entrepreneur Camp Alumni Forum for sharing thoughts, posting questions, and providing peer-to-peer mentoring for your cohort as well as your extended network of Apple Entrepreneur Camp alumni in a secure environment.

Ongoing Support

You’ll establish an ongoing relationship with an Apple Developer representative who is an expert in your field and will guide you through app development, as well as act as a connection to Apple support for at least one year after your time at the lab.

Tickets to the Next WWDC

The woman founder, co-founder, or CEO and woman developer will receive tickets to the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) directly following lab attendance to stay connected with peers, meet other women in technology, and attend a special Apple Entrepreneur Camp alumni event at the conference.
