    Description:

    Seed Sumo is a mentorship driven accelerator that assists young entrepreneurs with turning their early-stage startups into successful businesses. The accelerator is a three month long program (near Texas A&M University) that takes place once each year. Seed Sumo chooses ten companies to receive $50,000 in seed funding, in exchange for around 10% equity. Founders also receive perks such as free hosting, world-class branding services, finance/legal counseling, a neat workspace, and a massive network of connections. During the 100-day program, which begins in mid-May and concludes in late August, accepted founders ideate, strategize, research, build, test-market, and as the program culminates, fine tune their pitch which each start-up shares in front of a large investor audience called 'Demo Day.' The 2014 class of 8 start-ups had raised around 4MM since demo day in September. The Seed Sumo Accelerator Program will be marketed heavily across Texas and other start-up communities nationally through mentor/investor networks, online, and at various related events across Texas. Seed Sumo will not fund biotechnology companies, restaurants, consultancies, or other local service oriented companies.
