Calling All Entrepreneurs!
We Need Your Help Building a
Start-Up Tech Accelerator from Scratch!
The City of Glendale received a $1 million grant secured by Senator Anthony Portantino from the State of California to launch a start-up accelerator. Accelerators offer mentoring, marketing, networking, investment opportunities and other services early-stage companies need to progress to the next level.
The City is hosting a meeting to seek feedback from start-ups, accelerators, potential operators and community members on how a Glendale-based accelerator would best serve YOU and make the greatest impact for the City and the region.
Join us as we discuss the future of the $1 million funding.
Start-Ups: Help us develop a program that you want…and need.
Corporate Companies & Community Partners: Help us lead a program that could benefit your employees and maybe even your bottom-line.
Potential Operators: See first-hand the ripe innovation market in the Tri-Cities and Northeast LA region, and make recommendations on how to attract top operators.
