This week was an exciting one for GENIUS NY as a new cohort of five startups joined the accelerator program. The program is a year-long in-residence accelerator focused on startups in unmanned systems, IoT and big data. GENIUS NY has invested $9 million dollars in 17 companies since its start in 2017.
The five companies (listed below) will pitch their startups on April 22 to a panel of judges before a live audience for a shot at the $1 million dollar grand prize. This exciting event will draw more than 500 people and include past GENIUS NY teams, local entrepreneurs and business leaders, and investors.
The new teams in this year's program include:
You can meet the teams at the Dinosaur BBQ on Thursday, January 30 as CenterState CEO hosts Business After Hours. Tickets and more information can be found here.
