The StartupXLR8R will catalyze venture creation via a facilitated, 36-hour code/design/pitch sprint concluding in presentations by founders to angels. The result will be new early stage investments, new relationships, and new business approaches of all kinds.
iStrategyLabs will source, vet and facilitate the founders and investors participating in the accelerator. iStrategyLabs may also provide promising startup teams with office space and mentorship in their Dupont Cirlce office.
You are welcome to apply with a pre-existing prototype/concept in hand. The more prepared your team is prior to the StartupXLR8R the better.
