Startups In The Fast Lane

FastlanequestionsOur nibletz interview series is extremely popular. For many startups it’s one of the first pieces of press they get because we focus on early stage through series A startups “everywhere else”. We’ve interviewed over 2000 startups through our Q&A interviews and our video interviews here at, the voice of startups everywhere else.

Recently we began to look at the startups we interviewed as they were going through an accelerator. Startup founders and entrepreneurs are hearing more and more about accelerators, that’s why at The Startup Conference we actually hold two different accelerator panels, one with the founders of those startups, and one with Managing Directors of accelerators from “everywhere else”. Both panels give startups an inside look at what it’s like to go through an accelerator from the startups point of view and from the accelerators point of view. This is a very important (and affordable) conference series to attend.

We’ve decided to continue to do Q&A interviews with startups in an accelerator but separate them so they are easy to find and so that startups can learn from each other.

If you’re going through an accelerator and were sent this link, or found it on your own, please answer the questions below and follow the best practices.

Best Practices:

– Copy and paste the questions and then add your answers in the body of an email. Email the answers to
– Please be as long form as possible and keep it in Q&A form (do not write it into story form)
– Yes we realize that some startups in an accelerator may be in “stealth” mode, so just say that but try and give us as much as you can
– Leave us all your social media links especially Twitter.
