Goal is to bring diversity into the media landscape. WestTech founder Kamali mentioned that at least half of the teams should be women, because he wants to encourage female founders and their ideas. Participants will receive a €12,000 Angel investment as well as a six month office space. Those who stay for 12 month will receive €24,000. Also, mentoring, and services and technology will be provided, the website explains.
