AT&T to Sponsor PSL’s 2019 Accelerator Cohort, Doubling its Size

Posted by AT&T Pennsylvania Team

Philly Startup Leaders’ Accelerator program will double the number of participants in 2019 thanks to sponsorship provided by AT&T.

Joseph Divis, assistant vice president for AT&T External Affairs, will join Kiera Smalls, PSL executive director, to announce the 12 new startups joining the 2019 PSL Accelerator cohort during the organization’s annual Founder Factory event on December 6, a full-day event bringing together local and national entrepreneurs, startup employees, government officials, academia and other key stakeholders in the startup ecosystem.

The announcement of AT&T’s sponsorship and the new cohort participants will help close out the day, at approximately 4:45 pm, at Fringe Arts & La Peg, 140 North Columbus Boulevard, Philadelphia.

Philly Startup Leaders’ mission is to help current and future founders succeed in Philadelphia and beyond.  The PSL Accelerator is an eight-week, fast-track program that equips full-time founders in Philadelphia with the knowledge and tools needed to grow their businesses, including a mentor to guide them during the program and beyond.  The program concludes with PSL Pitches, a celebratory event that gives each startup the opportunity to tell their story, pitch their business, and share what’s next for building their company in Philly.

"Partnering with AT&T allows us to reinforce this cycle of success and elevate the Philly startup community.  Thanks to AT&T, we are doubling the amount of startups participating in the PSL Accelerator program for 2019." —Kiera Smalls, PSL executive director

"Philly Startup Leaders is in a unique position, representing the largest network of emerging entrepreneurs in the city, while engaging experienced founders looking to give back.  Partnering with AT&T allows us to reinforce this cycle of success and elevate the Philly startup community.  Thanks to AT&T, we are doubling the amount of startups participating in the PSL Accelerator program for 2019.  We look forward to connecting these founders to the resources they need, and in turn increasing their chances for success,” said Smalls.

Divis said, “This is an exciting opportunity for AT&T, to invest in the work of PSL in its Accelerator program and to support the passionate founders in Philadelphia who will be grinding next year to take their promising startups to the next level.  We are proud to help strengthen the city’s startup ecosystem and shine a spotlight on the compelling platforms technologies and ideas that will mark the 2019 PSL Accelerator.”

Be sure to check back on December 6 to see the new cohort!
