The NewME tech accelerator is looking for Memphis-area startup entrepreneurs to participate this summer in the Memphis PopUp Accelerator.
It’s a three-night event June 28-30 that will include one-on-one coaching from NewME experts and a workshop titled “The Art of the Pitch,” among other things. The weekend culminates with “Demo Day,” when startups will network with players in Memphis’ tech scene, special guests from Silicon Valley, and pitch their idea to a panel of judges that includes local and Silicon Valley investors.
The event will be held at the University of Memphis FedEx Institute of Technology.
PopUp participants will pitch to win a potential slot at a future session of the NewME Accelerator in San Francisco and a prize pack valued at about $45,000 from partners like Google, Rackspace, Microsoft, ZenDesk and more.
The NewME Memphis PopUp accelerator is $99 per participant. Interested entrepreneurs can register by visiting newmeaccelerator.com and clicking ‘events.’
