PRESS RELEASE - Seattle, WA - Jun 30, 2021


On Monday Jun 28, 2021, TF Labs and FounderStreams officially launched its second cohort of the FounderStreams Accelerator, just a little less than two months since the first cohort's Investor Showcase on May 1st. With Cohort 1 successfully graduating 13 startups and the tremendous support of approval from startup community, investors, founders, and mentors, the FounderStreams Accelerator team moved quickly to launch Cohort 2.


After over 200 applications, FounderStreams selected 10 Startups throughout the US and Canada to participate in Cohort 2, with companies focused on software, hardware, and consumer goods, in the verticals of Cloud Infrastructure, AI, EdTech, HealthTech, Design, SportsTech, and Productivity.


FounderStreams is committed to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, though does not promote or market the Accelerator as such, rather showing so with its actions. Cohort 1 had nearly 80% of the startups having an underrepresented Founder, while Cohort2 consist of 100% of the startups having an underrepresented Founder and 50% of the startups having a female founder.


"I believe DEI is all about action, not simply saying it or having it as part of a marketing campaign. Our advisory team is incredibly diverse and our community is diverse, which leads to having more diverse applicants. I am so impressed by the 10 startups we have selected who are working on real problems in need of solving." Jonathan G. Blanco, Founder of TF Labs and FounderStreams TF Labs and FounderStreams is deeply focused in supporting startups and founder, as such there is no cost to participating in the accelerator, nor is there any equity exchanged. The FounderStreams Accelerator team, mentors, and advisors generously volunteer their time to support Founders.


The FounderStreams Accelerator will again be hosted primarily on Clubhouse, the popular audio based social media platform backed by Andreesen Horrowitz, with workshops, check-ins, pitch practices, lectures, and private session with industry experts, mentors, advisors and investors, over the next 5 weeks with Cohort 2's Investor Showcase taking place on July 24th at 12pm PST.


Each FounderStreams Accelerator workshop takes place on Clubhouse via a closed stage with FounderStreams Moderator presenting the information and the 10 Startups on stage engaging with questions and commentary related to the session's theme.
