EASTON — F3 Tech, a locally based accelerator program for startups and early-stage companies, is looking for new innovations in agriculture, aquaculture and energy storage for its new program.
F3 Tech is based in Easton and is launching its fourth Accelerator Program to help promising startups. The program is focused on startups geared toward the health of crops, alternative feed, energy stores and agricultural biotechnology.
Agriculture and aquaculture are two of the primary industries and jobs producers on the Eastern Shore and Delmarva Peninsula.
Innovative companies can receive up to $450,000 in funding. The F3 program requires no equity from participants.
“These are growing and dynamic sectors and we are excited to work with these companies to bring their innovations to market on behalf of our partners in industry,” said Chris Hlubb, program director for the F3 Tech Accelerator Program. “We have developed our most advanced application process yet using Qualtrics software to engineer the process for our key topics of interest. We hope it drives further applicants and awareness of the program.”
Companies picked for the program will also receive executive coaching and support as well as connections to other investors and potential clients.
Accelerator Program applications will be accepted through June 30. Finalists will be announced in August and the program will start on Sept. 7. To apply for the F3 Tech Accelerator Program, please visit: https://f3tech.org/program/accelerator/
