Accelerator Application Schedule & Events
The next Brandery startup accelerator class will begin in the summer of 2016. The program will run for 4 months in Cincinnati, Ohio, concluding with a Demo Day pitch to an audience of VC’s, angels, media, and other interested parties. We recommend you apply earlier rather than later, as we interview startups on a rolling basis.
We highly recommend interested startups meet us in person during the application process. If you don’t see a city that’s convenient for you on the schedule yet, let us know.
Applications are CLOSED for 2016. If you have any questions, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org!
