We’ve released applications for our three 2016 Summer Accelerators:
As a participant in our program you’ll have access to world-class mentors, hands-on programming, and $25,000 in seed funding that will help you build a killer startup. You’ll do a deep dive into your business and product strategy, learn to understand your KPI’s for growth, and perfect your investment pitches. You’ll also build your professional network through events like Start-Q and Memphis Demo Day, forming the relationships you need to scale your business.
Since 2011, Start Co. portfolio companies have raised over $12.3M in funding, and graduates from our accelerators leave with the skills, confidence, and traction they need to take their companies to the next level. But you don’t have to take our word for it, just ask some of our 2015 startups;
|“Upstart was the most valuable personal and professional experience I’ve ever had. I learned more in 3 months than I did in 3 years of law school.” – Rachel Fuller, CEO, Feather (Upstart ’15)
“Bring all you have to the table. Start Co. will pour gasoline on it and light your idea on fire.” – Jessica Buffington, MLSmyNest (Upstart ’15)
“It’s not just business-changing… it’s life-changing.” – Ken Sills, Preteckt (Seed Hatchery ’15)
“The curriculum is rigorous and rewarding. Oftentimes, the feedback is tough but because of it, you’ll be well-equipped, if not over-prepared once you graduate.” – Aaron Fitzgerald, CEO, Ncrease (Seed Hatchery ’15)
So who are we looking for?
- Founders that are passionate, flexible and execution oriented
- Teams with the necessary technical talent and business know-how
- Ideas that are solving a real problem (not just building a cool technology)
- Leaders that are willing to go all in and embrace the risky business of starting up
Program Dates May 2nd – August 11th
