In a $1.5 trillion logistics industry, there is still an overwhelming need for IT solutions. Though predictive analytics and mobile technologies have recently garnered attention, there remain major inefficiencies in the supply chain, mostly due to not keeping pace with the information technology boom that has grown 300% in the last 20 years.

Sparkgap, a mentorship-driven, seed funded accelerator, is leveraging its location in the global logistics hub (Memphis, TN) to foster innovative solutions for logistics technology startups through a rewarding 90-day bootcamp.

How is the program structured?
Following an intense pre-acceleration period of personal and professional development, participants embark on a 90-day acceleration program designed to encourage rapid progress and achievement of milestones. Over the course of the program, teams meet with mentors, attend weekly training and business development sessions, participate in cohort reporting sessions and meet individually with advisors. Additionally, prospective angel investors, service providers, influencers, and community leaders are invited to engage our startups, and there are opportunities for various social gatherings, such as the annual Memphis Barbecue Fest. The accelerator culminates with a city-wide Demo Day, during which all Start Co. accelerators across various industries pitch in front of an audience of angels, venture capitalists, and community leaders. Graduated teams join our strong network of alumni and continue to set milestones while receiving post-acceleration support for at least another 3 months.
