Announcing the Spring 2016 Highway1 Cohort

On Monday, February 8th, we kicked off the sixth class at Highway1.

The Spring 2016 cohort features nine startups, more than half founded by women, from as far as Mexico and the U.K., working on everything from senior care to fashion to the future of bicycles.

The class joins our 58 alumni from 12 countries around the world who’ve raised $90 million in venture and crowdfunding. We’re eager to get to work and excited to see the progress these nine startups will make by Demo Day. We want to thank our extensive network of founders, mentors and partners that continue to help our startups push the boundaries of hardware technology.
