Future Boston’s Accelerate Class of 2013
Future Boston Alliance is proud to announce the twenty-five business concepts accepted into the second annual Accelerate Boston, a six-month educational program for entrepreneurs looking to start creative businesses.
Accelerate Boston runs from August-December based on three core areas of development: Strategic mentorships with business leaders, bi-monthly classes based on a traditional MBA-curriculum taught through storytelling and first-hand experiences; and “Brown Bag Lunches,” casual, interactive sessions focusing on specific aspects of building a business led by experts of industry.
Highlights from this year’s program include:
In addition to the curriculum, Accelerate Boston aims to provide participants with networking opportunities and space to help fellow entrepreneurs connect, exchange knowledge and promote their work. Startup BLVD will facilitate an online networking platform. At the end of the six-month program, each company will pitch their business plan in an Investor Showcase for the opportunity to receive funding from the panel of judges. The wiinner will also receive one year of incubation space at Karmaloop’s headquarters in Back Bay.
