    Flashpoint is a startup accelerator program based at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Georgia. The newly launched incubator follows the typical format for programs like this, offering seed funding, mentorship, support, shared workspace and more, in return for a 6% share of the startup. Sig Mosley of Imlay Investments, working with some of the most prominent Atlanta angels, created the Flashpoint Investment Fund (FIF) as a vehicle to fund Flashpoint teams. This accelerator is especially interested in investing in early stage startups in the technology, medical device and biotech industries. With its $1 million fund, the organization typically provides between $15,000 and $25,000 in funding to the companies accepted into the program. Flashpoint is unique in implementing startup engineering, a business creation and innovation process developed by Dr. Merrick Furst at Georgia Tech.
