NMotion Partners with gener8tor to Launch NMotion gBETA Programs
Beginning in 2019, gener8tor (gener8tor.com) will be joining forces with NMotion (NMotion.co) to offer new ways for early-stage, high-growth startups to launch and grow. The partnership will further NMotion’s mission and provide a larger network of mentors, resources, capital, and collaboration for startups in Nebraska and the Midwest.
The Lincoln Partnership for Economic Development and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln have been committed to working together and building the startup ecosystem by sponsoring the NMotion Accelerator.
As part of this relationship, gener8tor will operate three NMotion programs per year under a “free” model. Each program will run for seven weeks, consist of five startups and require no fees and no equity from participating startups. gener8tor started offering this “free” model under its gBETA brand in 2015. Today, gener8tor operates gBETA accelerators in Beloit, Cincinnati, Detroit, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Madison, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Northeast Wisconsin, and Toronto.
gener8tor will continue to operate this program under the NMotion brand, and five teams will be accepted to each of the three seven-week programs run annually starting in Spring 2019. Two cohorts will be open to startups across all industries, and one cohort will be focused on AgTech/Food-based startups.
Participants receive intensive and individualized coaching and access to gener8tor and NMotion’s national networks of mentors, customers, corporate partners and investors. The program is designed to help startups gain early customer traction on their product or idea, and establish metrics that make them competitive applicants for full-time, equity-based accelerators or seed investment.
NMotion (NMotion.co) is currently accepting applications for the NMotion director, which will be responsible for operating the program. Interested applicants can learn more at nmotion.co/careers. Applications are also open for startups who would like to participate in the program at nmotion.co/2018/12/06/apply. Individuals wishing to get involved in other capacities should contact Christina Oldfather at firstname.lastname@example.org or (402) 525-7461.
