PARSIPPANY, NJ—July 31, 2012—Revelstone, a provider of local government and municipal performance management solutions, today revealed it is one of only seven companies from across the country selected to participate in the inaugural group in Code for America’s (CfA) Accelerator program. Code for America is a non-profit that’s trying to make government work more like the Internet: more open, more efficient and more collaborative. Accelerator is CfA’s first civic startup incubator, designed to help governments with new technological solutions.
The Code for America Accelerator program will "turbo-charge" select civic startups by providing them an opportunity to amplify market awareness of their product, to access a wealth of business training and advice, and to be introduced to a broad network of potential investors and civic leaders. Plus, each participating startup receives a $25,000 grant.
Every month, the startup teams will be brought together in CfA’s San Francisco offices for an intensive week-long curriculum led by industry experts; coupled with networking events with investors. Throughout the remainder of the program, the startups will have access to hands-on mentorship, administrative support and office space.
“Being selected for the Code for America’s Accelerator program is a tremendous honor and an opportunity for us to extend Revelstone’s reach,” said Ken Wolf, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Revelstone. “We are excited to be working with other industry leaders who share our vision of helping make governments more efficient.”
