Director, gBETA Cleveland:

gBETA is a free, seven-week accelerator for early-stage companies with local roots. gBETA Directors recruit local startups, help them grow through applied mentorship, connections and support, operate the accelerator programs, engage alumni, and are gener8tor’s front-line to evangelize the startup communities in which they work. We are looking for ambitious community advocates whose hunger to support entrepreneurs, connect with mentors and investors, and strengthen the startup ecosystem is never satiated. No need for applicants to come with existing startup experience. gBETA Directors have come from prior careers in journalism, academia, economic development, science, politics, law, and nonprofits!
