Our Accelerator company alumni have successfully received funding approximately 40% of the time. This is due in large part to Venture Expo, an event we host twice a year to connect investors to our Accelerator companies. The next Venture Expo will be held on Friday, April 27 from 1 PM until 5 PM with a networking reception immediately following. Click here for a schedule of the presenting companies.
