  • Introduction: Calling all start-ups, accelerators, potential operators and members of the tech community. Tell us how a Glendale-based accelerator would best serve you.

The City of Glendale received a $1 million grant secured by Senator Anthony Portantino from the State of California to launch a start-up accelerator. Accelerators offer mentoring, marketing, networking, investment opportunities and other services early-stage companies need to progress to the next level.

Take our survey.

Join us as we discuss the future of the $1 million funding.

  • Corporate Companies: Help us lead a program that could benefit your employees and maybe even your bottom-line.
