About this event

Why Startup Accelerators Matter with Jason Towns is a fireside chat with a world-renowned venture builder and investor who has exited from a startup venture, advised numerous growth stage companies, and has been featured in the Roots 100 Most Influential African Americans List. Startup Accelerators are located in many cities and towns across the globe. Accelerators play a critical role in developing startup ecosystems as they are known to be a launching pad for startups who want to become a part of a mission-critical environment that helps to nurture founders with mentors, investors, and other critical benefits that help the survivability of a startup.
