“CoBuilders” statewide accelerator initiative underway in Mississippi

Mississippi has announced its first “CoBuilders” statewide accelerator and pitch deck competition.

As described on the website for the program, “CoBuilders” is a 12-week program, but those interested in participating must apply through one of seven regional partners that will host seven statewide pitch events. Then, three start-ups from each regional event will be selected to enter the 21-start-up statewide cohort and receive a minimum $7,500 grant and other prizes.

CoBuilders partners include the Oxford/Lafayette Economic Development Foundation, Higher Purpose, Mississippi State University’s E-Center, Jackson State University, Mississippi Polymer Institute, and The Meeting Place.
