About the Startup Accelerator

Startup Accelerator is active-networking focused on connecting people through collaborative education sessions, open and social networking and matching your needs to professionals and experts with the information that can help with your project or business.

To get those answers you need now we encourage you to interact openly with anyone and move between sessions at any time. If you have a project or are looking to get involved with a project this is for you. Professionals, engineers, people starting or improving businesses, people on a mission.. you'll be able to meet them all, talk to them all, work with them all.

The hands-on activities are there to improve your prospects and ideas.  Whatever it is you're starting or working on, you'll meet and interact with a variety of talented people from different areas of business and life who can provide assistance and inspiration. 

Coffee and bagels in the morning starts the networking. A re-energizing lunch and refreshments keep it going through the afternoon. 


Participation is really free, but...

To support our host community bring a donation to support the charity of choice - a small cash donation or some non-perishable food. It's going to be a cold winter especially for those without food or shelter.. Please be generous..
Other than that the event is funded entirely by our generous sponsors, so check out the sponsors tab and give them a big thanks!

How do I get involved?

Startup Accelerator is open for all to participate. Anyone trying to start something new, or taking something to the next level, should be there. And not just business folks. Come for the whole day or just for a few hours. Present or listen (you can propose or ask for a session on the website or on the day of the event). Mingle in the hall. Visit with experts or offer your expertise.
