The Startup Factory


The Startup Factory, the most highly capitalized technology accelerator in the southeast, runs an intensive three month program customized for early stage startup companies. Startups receive $50,000 in seed capital, hands-on mentorship, and access to our broad network of active angels, veteran startup founders, and experienced technology experts.

We get our hands dirty.

Throughout the program, our hands-on mentors help companies develop and refine their product, launch it to their target customer segments, and test their delivery and business models. All companies that successfully complete the accelerator will receive a convertible note of $20,000 to $150,000.

Want to be part of a dynamic entrepreneurial team? Want to sit in the epicenter of seven to ten startups going through their build strategies? Want to do real work and get your hands dirty?

TSF has immediate openings for two interns; a Marketing-Focused Intern and a Research-Focused Intern. Candidates will commit 25 hours a week for a summer internship, and the fall intern will commit to 15-20 hours a week for the duration of our fall session (August 28th to December 14th).
