WHAT IS THE ACCELERATOR?
(and why oh why did they have to take our Varsity?)
“We are launching the Samsung Accelerator as an incubator for startups. Samsung is committed to building great customer experiences by marrying our leading hardware with innovative new software. We are looking for entrepreneurs who want to help us develop products and services that can become the connective tissue between our various devices – TVs, mobile phones, tablets, cameras, laptops, home theater systems, etc. The Accelerator is part of Samsung’s new Open Innovation Center, based in Silicon Valley and NYC, which will also invest in, acquire and partner with entrepreneurs and startups with great ideas.”
