Time flies…

Eight startups began their journey through UpTech 6 at the beginning of September. Here is a look back at where they started six short months ago…

 

If you joined us at Demo Day last month, you know how the teams have grown since the above video. Throughout the 6 month program the teams meet with countless mentors, learn the ins and outs of building a business through our top-notch curriculum, speaker series, and workshops, met with customers, and participate in weekly advising sessions with our Managing Director. With these offerings and more, the teams have grown tremendously. 

 

 

UpTech 6 took the stage at The Carnegie last month to pitch their startups and their vision for the future. The countless hours practicing their pitches and working on the development of their startups paid off. The event kicked off with an appearance from Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin. Governor Bevin shared some words of wisdom and encouragement with the teams before they took the stageMost Demo Days signify the end of an accelerator program, but our program continued for one more month. Hence the term 5+1 month program. And trust me, even though the program has ended, these eight companies are just getting started.

 

We are so proud of of our 6th cohort and look forward to watching them continue to grow and succeed. If you’d like to be a part of their success, or connect with any of the startups, drop us a note and we will make it happen!
