The program is designed to nurture local tech entrepreneurs in their earliest stages and prepare them for an opportunity to participate in their actual accelerator program in Minneapolis mid 2018.
There is no funding/equity exchange dynamic with gBETA, or any fees for founders to participate; rather five teams meet individually and collectively throughout the course of the six week program for curriculum, networking, and mentorship:
“We’re ready to work with another handful of great local companies…this is our love letter to the community and we’re looking forward to getting to work,” gener8tor’s Minnesota Managing Director Eric Martell says.
Applications are due by December 29, and they kick off the program January 18 for 7 weeks.
Since their inaugural Premiere Night in October, gener8tor recently relocated to Spyder Trap’s old office at 1621 Hennepin Ave., while promoting associate Adam Choe to Program Director.
“One startup (Spider Trap) sells to another startup (Bright Health), and a third startup (gener8tor) takes over the space. This feels like the (startup) circle of life,” says Martell of the move.
