On Monday, March 9th, the Sprint Accelerator, Powered by Techstars, announced their second class. The Kansas City, MO based accelerator is focused on companies in the mobile health space. The accelerator is pretty standard, in terms of format. It will be a three-month long, fully immersive, mentorship driven process for all of the startups. Each company receives $20,000 in funding at the outset from Techstars, and each team will have the option to take a $100,000 convertible debt note from Sprint at the end of the program.
Without any further ado, here are the 10 companies selected to take part in the 2015 Sprint Accelerator, with the descriptions taken from Techstars.com:
