The real estate tech accelerator, elmspring, recently reported it’s end of year progress to its Board of Directors for its portfolio of graduate companies.
The elmspring accelerator was founded in 2013 by real estate entrepreneurs and Principals at Elmdale Partners, Thomas Bretz and Adam Freeman. The elmspring accelerator is the first seed-stage technology accelerator in the country to focus solely on the real estate industry. The four-month intensive program helps startups bring their disruptive ideas to market. Each participating startup receives seed capital, access to elmspring’s robust network of mentors and strategic partners, Century 21 Affiliated, Waterton, and Harrison Street, office space at Chicago’s center for technology and entrepreneurship, 1871, and many other professional services and resources. The program culminates with a Rush event where participants demonstrate their products for serious investors.
