A new business accelerator planned for northwestern Indiana plans to launch high-tech and entrepreneurial startup companies.

Entrepreneurs can now apply for classroom seats at the Northwest Indiana Tech Foundry in downtown Valparaiso. The program will give them $15,000 in seed money and mentor them for 90 days before sending them out into the real world. The program would start next summer and mentor 10 startups at a time.

Kelly Schwedland of Elevate Ventures, a statewide initiative that supports entrepreneurship, tells The Munster Times the program will be open to tech startups with ideas for services they could sell nationally or internationally.
