Application deadline rapidly approaching for Creative Destruction Lab’s nine-month accelerator program

Applications close July 30 for the next cohort of Creative Destruction Lab‘s (CDL) nine-month, objectives-based accelerator program. It is described as focused on “massively scalable, seed stage, science- and tech-based companies in 15 streams at nine sites across the globe.” The closest location is Atlanta which is home to CDL’s commerce stream that develops companies in areas like retail and consumer packaged goods at Georgia Tech’s Scheller College of Business.

Other streams are agriculture, artificial intelligence, blockchain, climate, energy, fintech, health, matter, neuro, oceans, prime, quantum, risk, space, and supply chain. More than 4,000 founders from more than 1,700 companies have already participated in CDL since 2012 with $8 billion in equity value being created through the program. CDL does not charge any fees or take equity.
