NYCSeedStart is a three-month accelerator program with a technology-focused approach. Instead of having a set of recurring mentors, SeedStart seeks out “the mentor that is absolutely perfect for each of our companies,” and that mentor is assigned “based upon the needs of your company to flourish during and after your time in NYC SeedStart,” according to the website. Companies also have an opportunity to present to investors during a Demo Day at the end of the program.
