They’re the 13 companies that just officially became DreamIt Venture’s 4th New York class of startups.. DreamIt has been around for a while and has street cred, having launched 145 companies including Adaptly, LevelUp, Parsely, SeatGeek, MindSnacks, SnipSnap, Reactor, Peeractive, TrendKite and Biomeme. This latest batch now not only has access to money and invaluable mentoring: the program’s alums have been on Shark Tank, have participated in TechCrunch Disrupt. Oh, not to mention that most have gone on to raise additional rounds.
The latest class hails from NYC and Virginia, Connecticut, Costa Rica and Bangalore. They do have a few things in common, like high hopes – and something of a leg up on the competition.
