MuckerLab, a Los Angeles-based startup accelerator, has officially launched.
Founded by Erik Rannala, William Hsu, Greg Bettinelli and Yan-David Erlich, MuckerLab aims to provide Internet software, services, and media entrepreneurs, which will be recruited through an open application process, with resources, infrastructure, capital, and guidance at their critical first stage.
During a 12-week program, entrepreneurs will receive funding, office space, curriculum and hands-on access to a mentor network of investors and entrepreneurs who can help them build, launch, and grow their businesses.
At the end of the program, companies present their businesses to potential investors at a Demo Day event.
In addition to the above mentioned founders, MuckerLab consists of an extensive network of mentors, including many of the top executives, entrepreneurs, angel investors, and venture capitalists both in Los Angeles and Silicon Valley.
The accelerator is also a member of the TechStars Network, a White House sponsored alliance of independently owned and operated startup accelerator programs in dozens of cities across the United States and around the world.
