Last quarter we shared how we plan to extend Mozilla’s resources and expertise to a broader universe of startups around the world. This is a brief update on our progress, next steps, and how you can be involved!
What is happening?
We’re transitioning from a hands-on accelerator program to serve a wider universe of startups providing resources from Mozilla to entrepreneurs around the world. We are working with various Mozillians to bring Mozilla expertise around areas such as privacy, data integrity and security to the startup world.
Because our new offering will require less day-to-day management, Diane has taken a program management role in Mozilla’s Developer Engagement group. And Didem will be an account manager for the Marketplace group. You can continue to use the firstname.lastname@example.org to reach us.
Today we launched a new website (many thanks to Aaron Druck for his help here!) which serve as the hub for content from Mozilla for entrepreneurs. This also has the fantastic entrepreneurship content we’ve created with our fabulous mentors over the past 2.5 years.
How can you help?
- Share your expertise. The Mozilla community is rich in depth and breadth of knowledge and skills that can help startups. If you have some information or resources that you think will help them, contact us!
- Localize our monthly communications and website in your own language. As a global offering, we’ll be reaching entrepreneurs across various countries. Localization will be a huge asset!
- Spread the word. If you know of incubators, accelerators or others in your community who would benefit from these workshops, feel free to spread the word.
As always, do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or insights.
To the open web!
Diane & Didem
