About the Evernote Accelerator
The Evernote Accelerator is an intense residency program for the best independent teams building apps that work with Evernote. For four weeks, Accelerator teams will study a startup curriculum, attend workshops with Evernote engineers and designers, mingle with Silicon Valley influencers, and hack at their apps. It culminates in a demo day on November 14.
Travel, housing, and our legendary catered daily team lunches are included. Office space is provided in the Evernote building.
