After launching Acceleprise SF last summer and announcing our first fund earlier this year, we are excited to announce our 3rd cohort of companies in San Francisco. From the 1st cohort to this one, we have seen applications increase by 2.5 times and have been even more selective, only accepting about 3 percent of the companies that applied for cohort 3. As we continue to build our brand and network in San Francisco and as opportunies for SaaS based businesses continue to grow, we are seeing a stronger demand from SaaS entreprenuers who are looking for a more focused and hands on accelerator.
We asked a couple of the companies from this cohort to weigh in on why Acceleprise was the right fit for them.
“We couldn’t be more excited to join Acceleprise’s latest cohort and their phenomenal network of SaaS industry experts. As an early stage enterprise software startup, this is a tremendous opportunity for us to rapidly scale our business with mentors who completely get our space and our customers” said Eileen Carey, Co-Founder & CEO, Glassbreakers.
“Acceleprise is a perfect fit for PactSafe. The cohort size, combined with the laser focus on enterprise Saas companies, allows Acceleprise to craft a mentorship program custom to our team, product and business model. It is certainly not the one-size-fits all approach you see with other accelerators.” said Brian Powers, Founder & CEO, PactSafe.
The eight companies in this cohort are below:
AlphaRank leverages machine learning to identify and map offline influencers using nothing but anonymous transaction data
