gener8tor Announces 50 Companies Participating in Fall Pre-Accelerators Nationwide
Top-ranked startup accelerator gener8tor announced today the participants selected for 10 of its Fall 2020 gBETA cohorts, including gBETA Madison. The 50 startups are located across the country, and represent a wide variety of industries and verticals, including IIoT, Medtech, SaaS and beyond.
The gBETA Madison Fall 2020 cohort is the 16th program to kick-off since the program’s inception in 2015. The gBETA Madison program has 75 alumni, which have collectively raised more than $37 million.
gBETA is a free, seven-week accelerator that works with five startups at a time for no fees and no equity. gBETA is a program of nationally ranked startup accelerator gener8tor. Each cohort is kept small to ensure meaningful engagement with the gener8tor team, network and other resources. Participants receive intensive and individualized coaching and access to gener8tor’s national network of mentors, customers, corporate partners and investors. The program is designed to help startups gain early customer traction on their product or idea, and establish metrics that can make them competitive applicants for full-time, equity-based accelerators or seed investment.
“The guidance and connections that gBETA and gener8tor provide to entrepreneurs is crucial to move their ideas forward,” said Katie Rice, Venture Associate at WARF and Program Director at UpStart, a gBETA Madison sponsor. “WARF is proud to support this work and grateful for such impactful partners in our ecosystem.”
The 10 Fall programs kicked off on Thursday, Oct. 1 and the startups will work with the gener8tor team over the course of seven weeks to meet mentors, gain customer traction and pitch to investors. Due to COVID-19, the Fall 2020 programs are all being held virtually.
The gBETA Madison program will culminate with a virtual pitch night held with the gBETA Milwaukee and Beloit Fall cohorts. Pitch Night will highlight each of the 15 companies and will be an opportunity to listen and learn more about the companies, network with the founders and other community members, and celebrate the hard work each team put in over the course of the seven week program. Pitch Night will be hosted on Dec. 15 at 5 p.m. To learn more and RSVP, click here.
