Seed accelerators (such as YCombinator, Techstars) have recently received much attention both in the US and across the globe. While accelerators appear to be proliferating quickly, little is known regarding the value of these programs; how to define accelerator programs; and the importance of the various aspects of these programs to the ultimate success of their graduates.
Professor Yael Hochberg of MIT and Rice University and Managing Director of the Seed Accelerator Rankings Project will release the 2013 Accelerator Rankings and present key aggregate statistics on accelerators and accelerator graduates in the US. Prof. Hochberg will also discuss the distinction between accelerators and other types of entities, such as incubators, angel networks, and seed funds. The session will end with a discussion of emerging trends in the ecosystem.
