Tech diversity: Accelerators go after women, underrepresented minorities for new startup ideas
from International Business Times
When Diego Lafuente, 27, started pitching his idea for a startup that connects Hispanic Americans with lawyers, he was met with confusion. Mentors and classmates in his school's accelerator seemed not to know the size of the Latino market or why the service would be useful to people who need immigration or other legal help. And the name Abogadazo — Spanish for "great lawyer" — meant nothing to them."People would be saying, 'What does that mean? Why did you choose that? Why'd you choose that name? It's so long. You should choose a four-letter name,'" Lafuente said.
