This year, we invited companies from the 2016 Incubator cohort to apply for additional support, as part of a pilot for a Startup Grant program. Recipients received workspace for the summer, ongoing mentoring and a $5,000 grant.
The purpose of this program is to provide the types of support required in the time gap between completion of the early-stage Incubator Program and the stage at which these ventures might receive early-stage investment or become self-sustainable. In the future, we hope to expand the resources we can provide as part of this initiative.
The 2017 Startup Grant recipients are:
- Critical Flow
Throughout the past year, these teams have hit a number of milestones:
- Raising, in aggregate, close to $1,000,000 in both equity and grant capital
- Adding brand-name clients to their portfolios
- Earning national awards
- Working directly with clinicians and local schools
- Connecting with hundreds of new customers on an east coast tour
