We have a special mid-week announcement! We’re beyond excited to announce the Liftoff List, a new initiative celebrating the top student founders across the country.
We’ve met with so many amazing student entrepreneurs through Accelerated, and we want to highlight their work to a broader audience. We’ll be selecting 25 companies to make the list, which will be published in Accelerated and a national tech outlet.
We have an amazing panel of judges that will be helping us select the winners - Saar Gur (CRV), Hunter Walk (Homebrew), Alexia Bonatsos (Dream Machine), and Ryan Hoover (Weekend Fund and Product Hunt). Three companies will pitch live to these judges, and one will receive a $100K convertible note investment from CRV.
We’re looking for applicants from any school or degree program. We just ask that you meet the following criteria:
At least one founder is a current student or recent grad (2019)
Must have a product built and live with users or beta testers
Based in the U.S. or Canada
Applications are due on 2/21 at midnight PST. We can’t wait to learn more about your companies!
