Highland Capital Partners is eager to announce we are now accepting applications for our 2017 Summer@Highland program. The first round deadline is March 31, 2017, and the application period will be open until May 1, 2017.
In its tenth year, Summer@Highland is a startup accelerator which helps the next generation of student entrepreneurs build their companies over the summer. Selected teams receive a $30K investment, free office space, and the opportunity to leverage the network and experience of the Highland partners. Since inception, Summer@Highland has helped 50 teams go on to build companies like Cloudflare, Handy, Wellframe, and Wildfire. Members of the program have gone on to raise nearly $400M in aggregate venture capital and have built businesses acquired by the likes of Dropbox, Google, and Oracle.
We regularly accept teams that would be considered too early for an accelerator, and we have built the program to be complementary to other accelerators, with many of our teams participating in programs like Y Combinator simultaneously.
