The TechCelerator is a designated, shared workspace located in the HRC-CREDC Business Incubator. Entrepreneurs who are chosen to participate in the program will receive $1,000 in a seed account to get them started on fully developing their business plan. Those who successfully complete the program can compete for $10,000 to jump start their business and will have the opportunity to pitch their idea to a panel of investors.
Pam Martin, the Executive Director of the Ben Franklin TechCelerator Program commented, “So far, we’ve had more than a dozen inquiries, and we’ve just started the interview process. With just six seats available, those who are interested should apply as soon as possible in order to be considered.”
