Last week, Elpha launched as an independent company, spinning out of the famed Y Combinator startup accelerator program.




Cofounders Cadran Cowansage, Kuan Luo, and Abadesi Osunsade founded Elpha to build an online network of women in tech to provide each other with advice and resources especially since women often find themselves as the only female member of their team.




Elpha will become part of this summer's Y Combinator batch.



Cadran Cowansage, former engineering lead at the famed Silicon Valley startup mentorship program Y Combinator, had always wished that there were a professional network of women. Now, she's working to make that dream a reality.
Cowansage, along with cofounders Abadesi Osunsade and Kuan Luo, have started up a new company called Elpha an online community to provide advice and resources for women in tech.
"I started it because I didn't have a place to talk candidly about being a woman in tech," Cowansage, now Elpha's CEO, told Business Insider. "Having that sort of business insight coming from other women is something I always wanted."
