Velocity Accelerator: noon - 12:30pm
Our friends Nate Schmidt and Estes Hughes are visiting from Brimingham and will be talking about Velocity: Alabama's first startup accelerator - a program that's opening the investment community to fund promising high-growth companies around the region, and helping entrepreneurs connect to mentors, resources, and thousands of dollars in perks.
They completed their first cohort in April, and four of nine companies have already received funding. For their second round they are looking for startups for all around the State; if you think you will be a good fit come to meet them and get familiar with the program. Applications are open for the 2018 program!
