Meet the 2018 Rev Hardware Accelerator Teams

Meet the 2018 Rev Hardware Accelerator Teams

Rev: Ithaca Startup Work’s 2018 Hardware Accelerator recently just launched and the new cohort of startups is poised and ready to take their companies to the next level. For 11 weeks, 8 teams, each with their own business ideas, will engage in an intense summer program that guides them through the process for determining if their ideas are commercially desirable, technologically viable, and economically feasible.

Rev’s Hardware Accelerator will educate and coach teams with the help of guest speakers, workshops, and dedicated mentor sessions. The Accelerator also gives teams access to Rev’s state-of-the-art prototyping lab to help them further design their prototypes. At the end of the Accelerator, teams will have the tools to confidently push their startup to the next level, bring on new team members and potential partners, and pitch to investors.
