It’s questionable how much anyone can get out of a 10-second pitch, but if you’re looking for a boost for your startup, some facetime with the organizers of Entrepreneur’s Roundtable Accelerator is not a bad place to go.

The Manhattan-based accelerator program will come to Brooklyn Nov. 2, at the Dumbo coworking space Kongo, to hear short pitches from anyone who comes and to explain the program, including an audience Q & A. The pitches are only 10 seconds, but a group of them will be picked for more proper one-minute pitches to the ERA panel.


The four-month accelerator program offers a handful of startups $100,000 in exchange for 8 percent equity three times per year, as well as access to a mentor and investor network. The program has gotten good reviews from the Brooklyn startups we know that’ve graduated, which includes TwoSense and Payfully. Two more Brooklyn startups, Bonbouton and PCB:NG, are in the program now.
