Event description

Description

Accelerators, incubators, virtual programs - the resources available to entrepreneurs have grown dramatically in New York - but how should an entrepreneur decide which accelerator or program is the best fit for their startup? How can they up their chances of making it through.

For this panel discussion we have invited three top leaders from the new York ecosystem to share some stories, successful and not so successful - of how to make it into an accelerator.

By attending you will learn:

  • How to pick the best accelerator for you

  • What is involved in a good accelerator program

  • What questions to ask before applying to an accelerator program

Since many StartOut members have been through programs, come network and see what people have to say about their own experiences.


Agenda:

6:00 pm - 7:00 pm: Registration* and networking with drinks
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm: Panel discussion and questions
8:00 pm - 9:00 pm: Networking and event wrapup

A special thank you to Orrick for hosting this event and their continued support of StartOut.
