Accelerator application trifecta: TechStars Seattle, Portland Seed Fund, and PIE currently accepting submissions
Why just work on one accelerator application this weekend when you can complete three? That’s right. If you’re interested in some acceleration, there’s a whole bunch of opportunity for your startup.
In order of due dates:
PIE applications are due June 12. The PIE accelerator has graduated companies like Athletepath, Cloudability, and VendScreen and served as the early home to companies like AppFog and Urban Airship. Mentors include a who’s who of the Portland startup scene, entrepreneurs from around the world, as well as Google and Coca-Cola. Apply to PIE.
TechStars Seattle applications are due June 15. TechStars powers a network of accelerators around the US. Alums include local companies Cloudability and Vizify. They boast mentors from around the world. And are considered by many to be the best accelerator program for Web startups. Apply to TechStars Seattle.
Portland Seed Fund applications are due July 9. PSF has graduated companies like Audioname, GlobeSherpa, Superbly, and Vizify. They boast mentors from around the Portland startup and investment scene. And they’ve recently added networking trips with the Bay Area and Seattle investment community as part of their program. Apply to Portland Seed Fund.
So that’s three awesome—and complementary—programs for your startup. If you’re looking for a little cash, some amazing mentors, and a chance to meet with interested investors, get to applying.
