Start Co. operates three vertical-specific accelerators: Seed Hatchery (for B2B tech), Upstart (for Women-Led tech) and Sky High (for Social Impact tech).

Each accelerator leverages assets of the Memphis community, as well as a national network of partners, investors, mentors and alums, to guide founders through an intensive three month bootcamp of business development and growth. At the conclusion of the program, accelerator participants have the opportunity to showcase their companies during a Demo Day event. Graduates of these accelerators receive an invitation to participate in post-acceleration curriculum and join a network of dedicated mentors and committed alumni who want to see you succeed.
