Startup Next is a 6-week pre-acceleration program for idea-stage startups, where founders get together once a week for a 3-hour session. By pairing founders with mentors, the program provides education, guidance and valuable connections to help startups on the next step of their entrepreneurial journey.

Startup Next Cyber in partnership with Booz Allen Hamilton will allow startups to work directly with Booz Allen Hamilton mentors and executives.

The program will be lead by entrepreneur and investor Jason Chen of VentureScope, who is bringing along some of the best mentors in the DC startup ecosystem, including Mark Newberg, Director of Impact Strategies at Womble Carlyle.

In addition, some of the program mentors from Booz Allen Hamilton will include Brian Green (VP, Cyber), Brad Stone (VP, Cyber Futures), Nyla Beth Gawel (Principal, IoT and Strategic Alliances) and Gregory Starkey (Principal, Cyber). 

The program will take place at Booz Allen Hamilton in DC from September 22nd through November 3rd, 2016. The deadline to apply is September 11th. Find out more information and apply here!
