This summer, gokit.me will be participating in the NewMe Accelerator, a two-month program in Silicon Valley that matches minority startups with mentors, makes connections with venture capitalists and other funding individuals/organizations, and offers presentations from startup industry leaders and supporters. In short, gokit.me will get the “low-down” on all things startup during its stint in San Francisco.
gokit.me CEO Hajj Flemings, along with NewMe co-founder Angela Benton, and head of Foursquare of Business Development Tristan Walker, who will be speaking to the participating startups, were all recently quoted in a story by The Wall Street Journal about the NewMe Accelerator and its plans to boost minority startup involvement in the “Start-up Lifecycle”. Oh yeah, MC Hammer will be there too…
