Techstars Atlanta will be visiting Greenville next month as part of its nationwide search for startups.

Presented in partnership with Cox Enterprises, the accelerator program annually selects a group of 10 startups to participate in a three-month program that provides expertise, funding, and office space to help them accelerate their businesses.

The program culminates with Demo Day, where angel investors and venture capitalists learn about the participants’ businesses, according to a press release.

Approximately 75 percent of Techstars’ participants have received follow-on funding and/or become profitable soon after the conclusion of their three-month program.

“One of the goals of Techstars Atlanta is to help shine a light on our city as a hotbed for innovation,” Techstars Atlanta’s Managing Director Michael Cohn said in a statement. “We’re doing this by accelerating great startups already based here, but also by bringing international entrepreneurs to Atlanta. With the support of Cox Enterprises, we’re able to connect them with one of the city’s leading corporations. It’s a winning combination.”

Cohn and other leaders from Techstars Atlanta plan to meet with local startups at NEXT on Main in downtown Greenville on Thursday, March 8, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Office hours can be requested here.

Techstars Atlanta is seeking applicants that are focused on social media platforms, cloud-based data, predictive analytics, cybersecurity, human-computer interaction, blockchain, cybersecurity, marketplaces, SaaS, and digital-native B2C businesses.

Applications will be accepted here through April 8. The program will begin on July 16 and end with Demo Day on Oct. 15.
