The Iowa Agritech Accelerator is now taking applications for their 2019 cohort, the accelerator announced earlier this week.
Like in its first two years, startups selected to participate will receive $40,000 in seed funding, subsidized housing, office space throughout the incubator period, time with mentors and investors and opportunities to build strategic partnerships.
“In 2018, we hosted our second cohort, with startups from across the country and even the Atlantic. The applications we received, and the far stretches where they came from, are evidence that our program is growing, and our reach has moved beyond the Midwest,” said Executive Director Megan Vollstedt, in the announcement
The 2019 Iowa Agritech Accelerator program will run from May 28 to Aug. 29 and will accept up to five startups worldwide.
