30 Startups Accepted into #1 Online Accelerator Program
AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Newchip Startup Accelerator is excited to announce the launch of its September Seed Accelerator cohort, which includes 30 new startups from around the world. The startups range in industry focus from clean water technology to AI in music, online booking marketplaces, IoT pollution monitoring, AI-powered chatbots for reducing turnover, medical technology, and more.
“Our Seed Accelerator is consistently attracting companies from around the world because they understand the value we provide,” said Ryan Rafols, CEO of Newchip. “Our mission has always been to provide entrepreneurs with the right tools, skills, and knowledge so that they can fundraise from investors with confidence and ultimate scale their companies to the next level. We remain committed to driving this mission as our involvement with the global startup community grows every day.”
Newchip was founded as a solution to the 99%-of-startups-fail equation and it launched its inaugural online accelerator program in April 2019 with a focus on neglected startup markets. Since then, the Accelerator has hosted two additional Seed cohorts in June and July with entrepreneurs from around the world and is hosting its next Startup Expo from October 7th-11th. Similar to a demo day, Newchip Expos are week-long, online streamed, startup presentations to the Newchip and global investor community.
The Newchip Accelerator is disrupting the global startup accelerator and fundraising industry by formalizing entrepreneur education and mentorship as well as opening access to neglected markets for investors around the globe. Its programs accept new applicants on a rolling basis, graduating more companies than typical accelerators due to its equity-free and online nature.
