NewME Accelerator (short for New Media Entrepreneurship) started in 2011 as a 12-week program for startups founded by minority entrepreneurs. Each session, eight startups participate in the program, where they work on their business, network with others in the technology industry, and eventually demo their company for investors and others in the startup community.
Since its inception, 25 companies have “graduated,” with seven more in the Spring 2013 class. Here are 10 of these graduates that have gone on to receive media attention and funding. Learn more about these companies, and what is getting attention from the investment world.
