Reading Time: 5 minutes

34 Startups Accepted into Top Online Pre-Seed Accelerator Program

AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Newchip Startup Accelerator is pleased to announce the launch of its September Pre-Seed Accelerator cohort, which includes 34 new startups from around the world. The startups range in industry focus from flying cars to social network dating, intra-oral dental sensors, robot-built custom furniture, aerospace simulators, CAD software, and more.

“The companies we help in our Pre-Seed program are often in a very critical stage in their development and they need mentorship and a community of like-minded entrepreneurs to go to the next level,” said Ryan Rafols, CEO of Newchip. “The startup game has never been easy and it is most certainly not the path for those who are faint of heart. However, our focus with Pre-Seed companies is to help them create a plan and path to success, so that they can develop their market opportunity, grow, and thrive.”

Newchip was founded as a solution to the 99%-of-startups-fail equation and it launched its inaugural online accelerator program in April 2019 with a focus on neglected startup markets. Since then, the Accelerator has hosted two additional Seed cohorts in June and July with entrepreneurs from around the world and is hosting its next Startup Expo from October 7th-11th. Similar to a demo-day, Newchip Expos are week-long online streamed startup presentations to the Newchip and global investor community.

“Whether it’s building a team, rebranding a product, or even pivoting the entire startup,” said Rafols, “My team has been dedicated to helping our Pre-Seed accelerator companies learn everything they need to know so that they can get on the right path, fundraise, and take their business to new heights.”

The Newchip Accelerator is disrupting the global startup accelerator and fundraising industry by formalizing entrepreneur education and mentorship as well as opening access to neglected markets for investors around the globe. It’s programs accept new applicants on a rolling basis, graduating more companies than typical accelerators due to its equity-free and online nature.
