Participants in Memphis’ “Summer of Acceleration” announced

Three Memphis entrepreneurial partners – Epicenter, Start Co., and Memphis Bioworks Foundation – have announced the 12 start-ups participating in the third year of their “Summer of Acceleration” collaboration.

The 100-day intensive, hands-on educational program is designed to speed the development of high-tech, high-growth start-up companies, focused on four regional industries of strength: home services, medical devices, supply chain and logistics, and ag technology and innovation.

Start Co. will provide centralized programming for all participants on topics such as building a business model, customer discovery, and sales pipeline development. Beyond that effort, each accelerator partner will provide its cohort with industry-specific programming and connections to mentors and potential customers. All teams will co-locate at Start Co.’s downtown space throughout the summer.
