Excelerate Labs Applicant Party 2
Wednesday, March 7, 2012 from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM (CST)
Excelerate Labs is throwing another party for our summer 2012 applicants, and you’re invited!
Come and socialize, ask questions, mingle, and get to know the Excelerate team and each other. This event is open to anyone interested in learning more about Excelerate. We’ll bring the food and drinks. You bring your ideas and some questions. You'll also have the chance to ask questions of some of last year's companies.
If you attended our last open house, this will be a very similar event. If you have any questions, contact Kristin Barrett at Kristin@ExcelerateLabs.com.

When & Where
Excelerate Labs is an intensive summer accelerator for startups driven by proven entrepreneurs and investors. Led by world class entrepreneurs Troy Henikoff (SurePayroll) and Sam Yagan (OKCupid, Sparknotes), the program is unique in attracting dozens of mentors from around the country to work with the teams in direct 1-on-1 meetings.
The program selects ten companies every spring to participate in the 13-week intensive summer program. Starting in early June, the ten companies build connections and their business during the program. The program culminates in an Investor Demo Day at the end of August, where the companies showcase their progress and plans to more than 400 angel and venture investors from around the country.
