Accelerators | AlphaLab

AlphaLab is a Pittsburgh-based startup accelerator founded by Innovation Works, one of the most active seed-stage investors in the US. Twice a year they select six startups to participate in their 20-week program.

During the program, startups rapidly iterate on their product; test their business model; attend educational sessions; build their network, and drink lots and lots of coffee. At the end of the program, startups present their company to investors, corporate customers, and media at the AlphaLab Demo Day.

The program is longer than most accelerators, enabling startups to make significantly more progress, on the product and business front, before Demo Day. By limiting the cycles to six companies, AlphaLab ensures that each startup gets attention and hands-on support from the AlphaLab team, the staff at Innovation Works, their mentors and advisors, and the Pittsburgh business community. Notable alumni include The Resumator, NoWait, Shoefitr, Black Locus & Insurance Zebra.
