Accelerate Baltimore is set to open applications this month for the next cohort of its 13-week program providing resources to early-stage startups.

In its eighth year, the ETC program returns with funding from the Abell Foundation. Each of the six startups selected to participate in the program will receive $25,000 in funding, as well as access to an instructional program, advisors and free office space.

Th cohort closes out with a pitch night to investors, and one of the participating startups is selected for $100,000 in follow-on funding.

“The ETC’s focus is on making an economic impact on the city of Baltimore, one entrepreneur at a time,” ETC President Deb Tillett said in a statement. “The value of early stage funding and support is critical to the success of a startup, which is why the continued support of the Abell Foundation is so important to this program.”

Baltimore Development Corporation also provides support to the startups.

Last year, social podcast startup IsItGood won the additional $100,000. Additional alums of the program include edfintech startup Allovue manufacturing management startup FactoryFour and survey startup Arbit.

Applications will be open from October 22-December 10 through the program’s website.
