Accelerators represent the next frontier in commercial success for startups. That’s why SBA, in partnership with Global Accelerator Network, will host business accelerators from across the country for “Accelerator Demo Day” on July 19th in Washington, DC.
Whether in the form of office space in a cooperative setting, connections with funding sources, technical support, or operational management, business accelerators help ensure that job-creating ideas have the resources to come to fruition. Already, approximately $1.6 billion in funding has been raised through accelerators, along with the creation of more than 4,800 jobs.
During Accelerator Demo Day, business accelerator groups will have a chance to pitch to Blackstone, the Case Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation. In addition to Demo Day, SBA supports business accelerators through programs like Startup America, Startup University, and regional conferences.
Friday, July 19 | 9am ET
1133 15th Street NW, 12th fl
