About Machine

We’re launching a new community & early stage tech business accelerator based in Charlottesville, Virginia.

We’re curating top tech talent and high potential teams for acceptance into our program. Selected startups will receive $20-50K in seed investment, 3-6 months of free workspace, professional accounting and legal counsel, and mentorship from seasoned entrepreneurs and investors. Applications are now open!!

Areas of Interest

Our program looks for passionate entrepreneurs that have conceptualized a new technology or venture. Teams should be or soon-to-be full time in pursuit of their project. We seek those with collaborative mindsets, whose interests exist both in receiving and adding value to other Machine companies, and whose ventures align with past experiences and skills.

While there are no specific requirements, we favor highly scalable software and web based businesses that tackle big opportunities across a variety of sectors. We're more interested in you than your industry.
