We cannot tell you how thrilled we are to announce the teams that will make up the first class in the Evernote Accelerator.
The Evernote Accelerator is a one-month long class for six teams from our Devcup competition this year. We’re flying these teams out to Redwood City, California to work and learn with us as they take their great Evernote projects and work on improving their business structures and the products themselves.
In addition to providing a startup curriculum from our friends at Luxr, we’re also giving the teams a series of private workshops with Evernote engineers, designers, business experts, and a team of mentors outside of Evernote. We’ll have a series of public events, too, in which we’ll bring in great speakers to talk on topics important to startups. Watch this space for the calendar so you can come mingle with our teams.
We expect that the great products Evernote developers built for Devcup will emerge from the Accelerator even greater.
