Building on the success of its inaugural program, the second R/GA Accelerator is designed for startups developing connected hardware products and software services with the goal of helping them to build businesses and brands that can scale.
We have selected ten startups to join our three-month, immersive, mentor-driven program. The 10 companies reflect the fast growing realm of the Internet of Things that is powering connected devices – from homes and cars to warehouses and aircraft.
We are pleased to announce that companies selected into our upcoming program will receive support from world-class industrial design firm Astro Studios and PCH, which designs custom manufacturing solutions for startups and Fortune 500 companies, as well as industry leaders Stratasys, MakerBot and SOLIDWORKS.
The participation of these leaders in the IoT space combined with the support of R/GA’s technology, product design and marketing talent provides startups in the program an incredible advantage over their competitors.See the Press Release
The Internet has spilled out beyond the desktop and mobile screens and into devices, objects, and hardware. This isn’t a passing fad, but a innovation that is quickly becoming a part of our everyday lives.
This massive shift in how we experience and harness technology, also called the “Internet of Things,” includes new product categories, such as wearable technology and home automation and enterprise solutions.
The R/GA Accelerator taps into the emerging class of products that combine hardware, data, and digital services in compelling ways for consumers and businesses.
Demo Day 2015
At the conclusion of the R/GA Accelerator program our ten startups will pitch and showcase their companies at a one day invitation-only event in New York City. This past year, 650 investors, industry professionals and members of the media attended our R/GA Accelerator Demo Day 2014, after which many of the companies went on to meet or exceed their funding goals.
