Although the application deadline for the first class of the Launch Pad Tech Accelerator has passed, there is still time to apply for its new Community Program. Twenty-five companies will be selected to participate and will receive free structured programming and mentoring and low-cost work space. The 25 companies do not have to be in the three verticals (tourism/hospitality, healthcare and creative) that startups participating in the accelerator must be in.
The deadline for applications to the community program is Nov. 23. To apply or for more information, go here: http://launchpadtech.co/community
