Believe. Ignite. Achieve.

This year, in addition to investing in five startups from around the country for our 12-week accelerator programs, we will be investing $100K into building a sixth startup from scratch alongside each gener8tor cohort. This startup will participate in the gener8tor accelerator alongside the other five companies. Over the next two weeks, we are accepting applications from teams and individuals interested in being selected to become the founding team of this startup.

Ideas for these “studio” startups will be sourced internally from gener8tor and gener8tor’s corporate partners in Project North. Ideas will be vetted based on the Accelerator Studio applicant pool and those applicants’ respective capabilities, experiences and interests. Corporations interested in submitting an idea or working with the Accelerator Studio on co-creation of a venture should inquire about Project North membership.

Deal Terms & Perks:

  • $100,000 investment.

  • Access to staff interns (development, design, marketing, social media, journalism, business development, sales and more).

  • $1M+ in deals and perks from vendors like IBM Cloud, Rackspace, Amazon, PayPal, Zendesk and Microsoft.

  • Support from the gener8tor team and network of alumni and mentors.
