|Description||Technology Startup Accelerator|
First Growth Venture Network’s mission is to identify entrepreneurs and to surround them with the network they will need to support their growth.
First Growth is a program for high potential, seed and early stage start-up tech entrepreneurs, meeting in New York City and while many are based here, the program has drawn companies from Paris, London, Georgia, Louisiana, Chicago, Boston, and elsewhere. Advisors come from New York, fly in from Silicon Valley and Boston, among other locales.
First Growth takes these entrepreneurs and accelerates their “first growth” by (1) connecting them with venture capitalists, angel investors, successful entrepreneurs and advisors, all of whom have spent years in and around technology start-ups; (2) connecting each startup with successful network members who will provide advice at sessions and beyond based on various criteria; (3) providing regular opportunities for substantive information and networking with the First Growth community; and (4) providing a peer group of other high potential tech leadership teams in the First Growth program.
