For Accelerators and Incubators

Here's what you need to know in order for your cohort companies to be eligible for HR support and a free employee handbook:

  • Please email us to enroll as an incubator or accellerator and provide this benefit to your cohort companies.
  • We typically make a small annual donation to enrolled non-profit or city-sponsored incubators and accelerators.
  • We request a link to handbooks from your website so your members are aware of the free handbook benefit. If you wish to add Handbooks to your sponsor grid, you can find our logo assets here and here.
