The Come Up Accelerator
A HUSTLE Accelerator powered by New Ventures
The Come Up Accelerator is an industry-agnostic startup accelerator for Black and Brown founders. New Ventures has partnered with HUSTLE to bring in investors, subject matter experts, and mentors who know what it’s like to build a company as a minority.
HUSTLE, a force of positive turbulence, is committed to inclusive entrepreneurship as we challenge and shape systems, share stories as a way to expose barriers and work towards bridging the gap of entrepreneurial inequality, and provide resources to women, people of color, and those in marginalized business districts.
The Come Up is powered by New Ventures, one of the only inception-stage, investor-led startup accelerators in the Southeast. We are leaders for the region's vibrant startup community.
