Alpha Loft is pleased to announce our startup accelerator, Accelerate NH. This is a three month intensive program for startups and their founders. A small batch of successful applicants will receive work space, mentorship, support systems, weekly programming and much more. We provide space in Durham, Portsmouth, and Manchester, NH. We also provide a minimum of $5,000 capital to put towards building and growing the business. While most accelerators require equity in exchange for these services Alpha Loft is different. We require no equity. Our mission is to aid startups in New Hampshire, not profit from them.
There are many accelerators across the country. However in New England there are very few. In New Hampshire there is only Accelerate NH. Until now startups and their founders had to move out of state in order to follow their dream and participate in an accelerator program. That is not an option for many people. It isn’t good for New Hampshire either.
Starting today we are accepting applications. We do not require that a startup is from New Hampshire, however we do require that they locate in NH. Applications will be accepted until February 1st. Our panel of judges will accept a handful of startups to be part of our inaugural program. The successful applicants will be selected on February 9th. The program starts February 23rd and lasts for 3 months. At the end of the program Alpha Loft will hold a demo day for interested members of the startup ecosystem including but not limited to investors, business leaders, media and more.
