The Analog Garage Master Mechanic was just coming out of hibernation when the third Nor’Easter in ten days dropped 22 inches of snow. Forecasters say more is coming and the only way to cope is to think ahead to summer.

For Analog Garage, summer means new start-up cohorts at our accelerator partners. We expect things to begin heating up soon, both literally and figuratively, as entrepreneurs hone their ideas and their applications. We’ve put together a summary of the deadlines.

Mass Challenge is looking for the most-promising startups across industries and regions around the world. Apply for the chance to access millions in cash prizes, expert mentorship, top corporates, free office space, and more – all at zero cost and for zero equity.

Analog Garage has been working closely with the Boston team for the past several years and now we are located just a few blocks away (Watch for future posts about our new Analog Garage state-of-the-art facility overlooking Boston Harbor).

Deadline for the 2018 Boston, Mexico, and Switzerland MassChallenge accelerators is March 28 at 12pm ET. The Boston cohort begins June 18, 2018. Learn more.

Alchemist Accelerator is exclusively for startups whose revenue comes from enterprises, not consumers. B2B and B2B2C ideas all qualify. Alchemist operates out of the San Francisco Bay Area. Our team at Analog Garage West are the primary liaisons and can be regularly spotted at events.

Deadline for Alchemist applications is May 5 and the next program starts August 9, 2018. Apply here

SkyDeck may be a good choice for start-ups with a team member affiliated with UC Berkeley, UCSF or Lawrence Berkeley Lab. SkyDeck Berkeley Acceleration Method is a 6-month process for promising startups in any vertical.

Deadline for SkyDeck applications is March 30, 2018. The program kicks-off June 7, 2018. Apply here.

StartX puts founders first and takes no equity in your startup for joining StartX.  Most start-ups are Stanford University affiliated. However, applicants without a Stanford affiliation (visiting founders) who obtain a recommendation from a single StartX alumni community member before the deadline will also have their application considered.

StartX is now accepting applications for the Fall 2018 program. Deadline is June 24, 2018 for the session beginning September 17, 2018. Apply here.

Good Luck!
