Hey founder, ever wondered what Accelerator is the best fit for your Startup? Of course, you do. Got to go to their website, spend hours meticulously pouring through cryptic material, wait for their application acceptance date then send in your application 5 seconds after the deadline expired. What about that awkward pitch video? Hilarity ensues. 

How about we bring South Florida Accelerators to you? South Florida features some amazing programs and Accelerators with incredible success rates but are you a good fit? Better yet are they a good fit for you? 

Join us for a fun and unique event during which local Accelerators will be throwing down their best pitches, and you'll be the judge. Wow! How the tables have turned. Take this opportunity to compare what's available to you side by side, while we all win for being more informed.
