From subsidies to startup programs, boosting the economic development of an entire region is a complex task. In Upstate New York, where job growth is more modest than the national average, revitalizing the region is a primary goal of business and community leaders.
The six current GENIUS NY teams had a successful trip to New York City last week as they pitched in front of a room full of investors. The teams have come a long way in nine months and are now in positions to seek Series A funding. The event took place at Perkins Coie law office at 30 Rockefeller Center.
Let’s assume you have a good idea, and potentially a great business. Your startup is scalable and fundable—you’re prepared for quick growth. Understandably, you want to accelerate the development of your business.
Unmanned systems technology is changing the way humans and technology interact. If you run a startup in this sector—aerial, ground, marine, data-to-decision, cross-connected platforms, and Internet of Things (IoT)—the GENIUS NY program may be the best accelerator-incubator program for your team.
Choosing a startup accelerator can be a difficult decision. After all, you want your startup to become a successful company. If you are a member of an unmanned systems team, GENIUS NY— a year-long, in-residence business accelerator competition and incubator—may be exactly what you need.
Applications for GENIUS NY are being accepted until October 1, 2017. If your team is accepted to the GENIUS NY accelerator program, your startup will not only compete for a top prize of $1 million, but will benefit from intangible assets like mentoring and networking.
