Startup Accelerators 101


Startup accelerators are an essential pillar of the NYC startup ecosystem. There are 11.4 million Google search results for 'startup accelerator." But most of what we hear is rehashed conventional wisdom, so on September 27th, our panel of top accelerator experts will share their knowledge about accelerators, how they see themselves and their role in the ecosystem, how they're different from VCs, what constitutes a 'win' for them, and more! If you're interested in going the accelerator route, this is an event you will NOT want to miss!
