Startups are the building blocks of the economy.
Please join us as we launch our next cohort of great startups.
Become a Flashstarts Sponsor
This year, we are running both the Accelerator and a newly announced Labs program. Flashstarts Labs is a formal pre-accelerator diligence program that allows us to work closely with a greater number of companies. Companies accepted into our Accelerator receive mentoring, consulting, office space in StartMart and other startup services to develop concepts and quickly achieve validation.
The Flashstarts’ profile has increased significantly through our recent launch of StartMart, a co-working space where Flashstarts is the anchor tenant and has a daily reach that extends to our entire co-working community. Flashstarts’ visibility continues to increase through the proliferation of Flashstarts events, our teams’ successes, and awards and press recognizing our program.
Benefits of Sponsorship
Being a Flashstarts Sponsor is so much more than just a name on a page. It is access and visibility into the diverse entrepreneurial and investment ecosystem of Northeastern Ohio. Please download our “Flashstarts Reach” document to learn more about our network.
