It’s not easy to get into one of the most successful accelerators in the country, and out of thousands of applicants, only ten companies are selected to participate in Entrepreneurs Roundtable Accelerator’s four-month program. This latest bunch are offering solutions that range from automating API testing to helping patients determine the best place to go for the health care they need, from better sharing and personalization of mapping data to better coordinating of event calendaring, from improving image collaboration to helping universities connect with their alumni, from getting the whole news story to getting the real deal when it comes to travel.
