Flashpoint Brings More Atlanta Startups to NY for a Demo Day

9/13/12Follow @jpruth

Making a return to New York, the Flashpoint accelerator program at the Georgia Institute of Technology will show off 14 startups this afternoon at a demo day hosted at the offices of Union Square Ventures. Back in January, Flashpoint made its first appearance in Manhattan with a demo day that introduced these Atlanta-based startups not only to potential investors but also to possible collaborators in the New York innovation scene.

Companies that complete the four-month accelerator program each receive $15,000 to $25,000 in funding from the Flashpoint Investment Fund. In return, investors take a 6 percent stake in each startup. On Sept. 20, the startups will demo again at the San Francisco offices of Peter Thiel’s Mithril Capital Management.
