The Idea Village is now accepting applications for the 2016 Entrepreneur Season accelerators. Founders looking to scale their ventures in New Orleans are invited to apply for three intensive programs at www.ideavillage.org.
Applications for IDEAx and DIGITAL MEDIAx will close at 11:59pm CT on Saturday, August 22, and applications for ENERGYx will close at 11:59pm CT on Friday, September 4th.
Each program provides access to dedicated Entrepreneurs-in-Residence (EIRs) as well as The Idea Village’s influential network of mentors and experts to ensure that participating entrepreneurs have the resources necessary to accelerate the growth of their ventures and develop the skills required to emerge as entrepreneurial leaders.
The Idea Village’s accelerator programs are highly competitive in an effort to identify the most capable entrepreneurs. Of the 180 entrepreneurs that have gone through an accelerator, 83% are still in business and 91% are still located in New Orleans. Collectively, these entrepreneurs have raised over $75 million in private capital, created over 1,300 jobs, and generate $155 million in annual revenue.
