Groundswell Startup’s first collaborative Idea Stage Accelerator Cohort, in partnership with StaterStudio, wrapped up this past month with a Pitch Night. Seven founders, who over the past ten weeks worked to test their ideas, conduct market research, and build sustainable revenue and business models, pitched their ideas to a socially distanced audience of mentors, community partners, and fellow Groundswell companies.
Groundswell is ready for an exciting 2020 as we celebrate the success and growth of our startup companies. Since 2016, Groundswell companies have raised over 25 million dollars in funding. As an organization, we know that access to capital, especially in the early stages of development, is crucial to a startup's success.
