If you hadn’t heard, NYC has been undergoing a bit of a as of late.  And with the boom have come myriad opportunities for NYC startup entrepreneurs or those willing to relocate to get expertise, wisdom, capital, and connections from a burgeoning group of startup accelerator programs.  Yes we know many folks call them incubators or seed funds, but you know what we’re talking about.

So as a helpful guide to startup entrepreneurs, below are NYC Startup Accelerator programs with some relevant details about them including whose involved, what you get, how much equity they take, etc.  If we’ve missed any, please leave them in the comments, and we’ll add them.  We’ve not included descriptions as “on paper”, they’re often similar.  That means 10-12 week programs that offer real estate, mentors, free advisory (legal often), some amount of financing, networking events and usually end in an investor pitch day.  Of course, this doesn’t mean they’re all the same in reality, but that decision is yours to make after doing your own reverse due diligence.  Our goal is simply to arm you with the information to get you started.
