Taking on the East Coast, Al Pickett (VP of Diversity) represented Start Co. at the kickoff of the SBA Growth Accelerator Fund in Washington, DC. Meanwhile, the rest of the Start Co. team met up with graduates of the 2014 accelerators in San Francisco. On the agenda: wrapping up the post-acceleration program with meetings, company tours and a Demo Day: San Francisco Edition at 500 Startups.
The trip was a great chance for our graduates to build their networks, explore a variety of startup cultures, and reconnect with Start Co. partners and mentors based in San Francisco. Additionally, the Start Co. team was busy laying the groundwork for the 2015 Accelerator Season. See a recap of our adventures on Storify.
