WeWork and SoftBank unveil the first 14 startups in their Emerge accelerator for underrepresented foundersSoftBank Investment Fund and WeWork Labs say they’ve officially kicked off the first session of Emerge, an accelerator program designed for underrepresented founders.

Here are the 14 startups in the initial program:
