The Program

Capital Innovators provides tech startups with the funding, resources, and connections they need to reach the next level. Our accelerator program gives startup companies $50,000 in seed funding, project-based mentorship from a seasoned pool of knowledgeable entrepreneurs, stellar perks, networking, and follow-on funding opportunities over the course of 12 weeks. 

Although hundreds of applications are received for the Accelerator Program each year, only a handful of companies are accepted per class. Two classes are run each year – one in the fall, and one in the spring. Make sure to check out our full program schedule and apply today.
