Newchip Accelerator

We are thrilled to announce our acceptance into the highly selective, world-renowned Newchip Accelerator Program! Thousands of startups apply to this program and less than 10% actually get accepted.

What is an accelerator program and why is this a good thing? An accelerator program is a broad term for a program that assists promising startups with the tools, advice, networking, and more - specifically with the goal of helping the startup scale and gain traction within the market.

Through Newchip's program, we gain access to project tools for the project to leverage, advisors to help us scale efficiently and grow, and access to a network of thousands of institutional investors. We will get warm introductions to various Venture Capital firms and angel investors, including intros to major names like a16z.

Entry into this program is not a guarantee of funding or a guarantee of success, but a program such as Newchip's puts us on excellent footing to scale Embr into a true global tech powerhouse. For testimonials of Newchip, check here.

Ryan Rafols, founder and CEO of Newchip Accelerator, wrote an article for Forbes a while back that highlights the role digital accelerator programs, such as Newchip's, play in helping remote businesses scale and gaining access to capital. Find that article here.
