Excelerate Labs

Excelerate Labs is an intensive summer accelerator for startups driven by proven entrepreneurs and investors. Led by world class entrepreneurs Sam Yagan (OKCupid, Sparknotes) and Troy Henikoff (SurePayroll), the program is unique in attracting scores of mentors from around the country to work with the teams in direct 1-on-1 meetings.

The program selects ten companies every spring to participate in the 13-week intensive summer program. Starting in early June, the ten companies build connections and their business during the program. The program culminates in an Investor Demo Day at the end of August, where the companies showcase their progress and plans to more than 500 investors and mentors from around the country.

Excelerate is based in Chicago, IL.

As of February 2013, Excelerate Labs has joined forces with TechStars and became TechStars Chicago.
