Venture Hive is pleased to announce that applications are opening for our Winter 2015 Accelerator class! We are seeking startups with working tech solutions in tackling challenges in the following industries: Creative (art, music, film, design, fashion, etc.), Finance, Healthcare, Hospitality/Travel, and Trade/Logistics. The deadline for applications will be Monday, November 24th, 2014.
The 10 selected companies will receive a $25,000 non-equity grant, participate in our 13-week intensive mentor-driven accelerator program, and six months of free office space at Venture Hive in downtown Miami. This program is made possible by the generous support of Miami-Dade County, the Miami Downtown Development Authority, and Miami WorldCenter. Venture Hive has partnered with firms such as DLA Piper to ensure the best possible support for our startups.
Since January, 2013, Venture Hive has operated a founder-friendly environment, bringing together tech entrepreneurs from more than 18 countries together under one roof. We work with visionary teams, lead by founders who want to build world-class businesses, not just cool products. Past accelerator participants include Everypost, The Fan Machine, Raw Shorts, Kimetric, and GetMyRx.
Accelerator companies must commit to their executive team being full time in Miami from January 26th to April 24th, 2015. Companies applying may be pre-launch but cannot have raised more than $500K.
