Working on a startup? Come to this special session to learn about the benefits provided by startup accelerator programs. Learn what accelerators are, what it takes to get accepted, and what the programs provide including seed money, mentorship, office space, and much more.
The session will be led by Mark Wachen, the Managing Director of DreamIt NYC, one of the world’s premiere accelerator programs. Wachen was previously the Founder/CEO of Optimost, the company that pioneered multivariate testing on the internet, and was acquired in 2007 for $52 million.
