Sydney Dev Camp founder Danila Davidson is hoping to inspire more women to enter the start-up scene, after being awarded the Female Founder Fellowship by the Sydney Founder Institute.
Sydney Dev Camp, a boot camp-style development school, was founded by Davidson and Peter Argent. It claims it can turn entrepreneurs into entry-level developers in a 10-week program.
Davidson is also involved in the Lean Startup Machine and previously worked for Rocket Internet. She is also the former chief operation officer of the Israel Italy Chamber of Commerce.
Davidson has been awarded the Female Founder Fellowship by the Sydney Founder Institute, which opened applications for its autumn 2013 program in February.
The Founder Institute, founded by Adeo Ressi in Silicon Valley in 2009, is an early stage start-up accelerator and global launch network, which helps entrepreneurs create tech companies.
Through a part-time four-month program, existing and prospective founders receive expert training, feedback and support from experienced start-up chief executives.
The final application deadline for this year’s Sydney program is Sunday, March 17. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.
“The Female Founder Fellowship is awarded to the most extraordinary female applicant to the Sydney Founder Institute,” says Benjamin Chong, who heads up the Sydney branch.
