Dear Accelerator SIG members,
Over the last eighteen months, we have developed a better understanding of the Bay Area accelerator/incubator landscape through your enthusiastic participation and proactive outreach and identified interesting/investable startups. Based on our collective experiences in this journey, we have narrowed down the list of Band’s “active network” of accelerators/incubators.
Moving forward, I’d like to propose a working model where we have a “relationship owner” for each of these accelerators. The relationship owner would be expected to set up office hours with their partner accelerator on a quarterly basis, nurture the partnership through active participation of SIG members in Demo Day/Investor day and similar events, identifying promising startups and bringing them to the appropriate SIG for screening purposes. A few of these have relationship owners assigned as noted. If you are interested in: (1) volunteering as a relationship owner for any of the accelerators listed, (2) if you would like to offer an introduction to an accelerator that is not included in the list above, and/or (3) if you would like to be added to the Accelerators SiG announcements list, please complete this form.
I look forward to your response.
Chair, Band of Angels Accelerators SiG
