In the past few days, I’ve had an opportunity to talk with David Greenberg, from LaunchHouse, about one of their accelerator programs giving ten teams of tech start-ups $25,000 in seed money.
Now, unless you live near Cleveland, Ohio where LaunchHouse is based, you probably don’t know much about them.
David explains, “LaunchHouse is an Ohio-based seed capital investment fund, like Y-Combinator or Tech Stars, currently offering $25,000.00 investments to 10 technology based entrepreneurial-teams from around the world.”
“What does an accelerator program in Cleveland, OH have to offer an aspiring entrepreneur? Cleveland is not a Silicon Valley, New York City, or Boston; however, LaunchHouse has played to its geographic strengths and embraced its city’s identity to foster a creative and successful environment for entrepreneurs in Cleveland.”
Below is the official press release on the program. There is a link at the end of this post to the press release on LaunchHouse’s site, and you can find much more information there, or start on their homepage at: www.LaunchHouse.com.
