Eleven startup companies are in the running this year for GigTank, the Co.Lab's annual 12-week accelerator program aimed at launching viable businesses.
The fledgling companies hail from all over the United States, and will converge on Chattanooga May 12 for the program, which offers each team $15,000 in seed funding, free housing at UTC and free workspace.
“The interest GigTank has received from startups across the country has been amazing,” said Mike Bradshaw, executive director of Co.Lab. “The reputation the program earned in its first two years brought us dozens of very highly-qualified applicants.”
Past GigTank graduates include Banyan, Iron Gaming, HutGrip and WeCounsel. This year, the program is focused on three tracks: 3D printing and manufacturing, healthcare and the smart grid.
