Two local startup accelerators were recently ranked among the best in the nation by Seed Rankings
Over-the-Rhine's The Brandery
was placed in the Silver category and Covington-based UpTech
in the Bronze category.
Seed Rankings looked at a number of data points, including Qualified Fundraising, Survival, Founder Satisfaction (which was obtained from a survey of entrepreneurs who have graduated from the pool of 150 accelerator programs) and Alumni Network.
The ranking provides information for entrepreneurs who are looking to join an accelerator and are in search of more information, including total dollars funded and the success rate of the accelerators.
Other startups that made the top 30 include Denver-based Techstars (Platinum), California's 500 Startups (Gold) and the nonprofit Lighthouse Labs (Bronze).
