Accelerator Pathways for Funding, Development & Mentoring

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Accelerators are a growing presence in the world of startups.  Recently game oriented accelerators have been growing around the world and verticals in health and fitness have also been founded.  These programs offer very specific opportunities and are especially useful for teams with established ideas and products that are looking for the support and final push needed to make the jump to greater levels of financing or market launch.

This panel brings together members of two successful accelerator systems one in games, and one in health to discuss how they operate, what types of entrepreneurs they work with best, how mentoring works, and the patterns of success that they see benefit from the accelerator process.  Once the basics are covered the panel will turn its attention to discussions of games for health specifically and without being partial to any one idea, talk about the opportunities and roadblocks exist toward seeing a more robust level of startup activity take hold.
