1492 Accelerator Program Picks Five Winners

Five startup businesses that run the gamut from lifestyles to life sciences recently were selected from among 162 applicants to accelerate the pace of their growth in a matter of months instead of the typical years it takes to launch a viable concept.

A collaboration between TechColumbus, Columbus State Community College and Columbus College of Art & Design with support from Ohio Third Frontier, the startups were chosen by a panel of business leaders and entrepreneurs after formal presentations in October as part of the 1492 accelerator program.

Each of the five participants will receive a $20,000 grant and will embark on an 11-week program of coaching and business mentoring – the end result of which is to launch a viable product or service by mid January 2012.
