The Alexa Accelerator, powered by Techstars, is a startup accelerator created by the Alexa Fund and built around the belief that voice will fundamentally improve the way we interact with technology. The nine startups described below were selected among hundreds of applications from 44 countries.
These start-ups will roll up their sleeves and work intensively to develop the fundamentals they need to improve their products, refine their business model, and, ultimately, bring new Alexa capabilities to their customers. During that time, they will benefit from exposure to and mentorship by diverse product, business and technology leaders from across Amazon, Techstars, and the community.
The program culminates with a demo day on October 9, 2018 where each company will showcase their progress in front of investors, leaders from Amazon, and the Seattle tech community.
