The AlphaLab Fall 2015 Application is open


AlphaLab is a premier startup accelerator founded in 2008 and based in Pittsburgh, PA. As a charter member of the Global Accelerator Network (GAN) and one of the first ten accelerator programs worldwide, AlphaLab has a proven track record in helping to launch high-growth startup companies, including The Resumator, NoWait, Black Locus (acquired by Home Depot), Shoefitr, and Insurance Zebra.

AlphaLab’s network consists of the top entrepreneurs, investors and mentors in the Pittsburgh region and beyond. AlphaLab is also part of Innovation Works, an early-stage seed fund that has invested over $50M in over 160 companies that have collectively raised over $1.3B. These include ModCloth, 4Moms, Civic Science, Mobile Technologies (acquired by Facebook), and ShowClix.
