Applications are available starting today (not an April Fool’s joke) for The eFactory Accelerator, a 12-week intensive program to jumpstart startup and emerging companies. The program will cover topics ranging from marketing to investor relations. Applications are available from April 1 – June 10, 2016.
The eFactory Accelerator will have two cohorts per year and will accept up to five companies per cohort. The first cohort will take place August 1 – October 21st.
The program will be housed at The eFactory and companies will receive a $30,000 investment for 8% equity.
In addition to the structured program focused on making businesses better and growth, companies will also have access to The eFactory’s partner resources and mentors.
“The eFactory Accelerator is the next stage in the progression of access to resources for startups. The eFactory is truly the ‘front door to entrepreneurship’ in southwest Missouri and the accelerator is a great addition to being a one-stop shop for startups,” said Brian Kincaid, Director of The eFactory.
Companies in the first cohort will present at Demo Day on October 21st. The event will be open to the public.
