RAMP accelerator welcomes third cohort; many of the startups already generating revenue
The third cohort of entrepreneurs that has taken up residence inside the Gill Memorial Building includes a former Microsoft coder, a behavior analyst, a longtime banking executive and a scientist who just won a $750,000 NASA grant.
They represent some of the founders behind six startups chosen from the 20 that applied to participate in downtown Roanoke’s RAMP business accelerator.
The budding entrepreneurs were just getting to know each other as they wandered the office recently in search of their logos stuck to office doors. That’s where they’ll spend the next few months in a fast-paced program designed to take their companies to the next level — while also putting down deep roots in the region.
The startups will receive training from Virginia Western Community College, office space owned by the city of Roanoke and mentoring organized by the Roanoke-Blacksburg Technology Council. At the end, they’ll have a platform to pitch their ideas to investors at the annual demo day event.
