Nashville, July 25, 2012, CONSENSUS POINT, a leading social prediction market company providing solutions for market research and market intelligence, has been announced as one of eleven seed- and growth-stage companies selected for Springboard’s 2012 Media/Tech community-driven accelerator program. For over a decade, Springboard has provided over 500 emerging growth businesses led by women with access to the human and financial capital needed to scale.
Selected from over 100 applicants globally by a Springboard committee of investors, seasoned entrepreneurs and industry experts, Consensus Point was invited to participate in an entrepreneur “Bootcamp” program held at Bloomberg in NYC and to meet with the members of Springboard’s recently announced Media/Tech Council.
Since 2000, Springboard has become a central player in the infrastructure that fosters women’s entrepreneurship with the goal of making direct connections for women entrepreneurs to sources of capital. “We’re bullish on the companies for this year’s accelerator program,” said Springboard Chairman Kay Koplovitz. “We are ready to put the full force of our ‘human capital’ to work for these promising innovators.”
Springboard’s accelerator program involves the active participation of industry leaders and hundreds of investors, accountants, lawyers and business development professionals in recruiting, qualifying and coaching emerging growth businesses led by women. Each company is assigned a “personal advisory board” that assists the companies in refining their presentations and facilitating connections to investors and business development opportunities.
