The Creative Startups business accelerator wants the word out that the deadline has been extended to apply to be in the second round of its creative companies.
The new deadline to apply for the accelerator program is July 19, though the program will still begin on August 31, said program manager Roxanne Blair. The Creative Startups accelerator is designed to help creative companies launch. It's picking between eight and 12 firms for the next group.
"We're looking for the companies that blur the lines between the traditional and the tech world," Blair said. "When I ask people about creative companies, the first thing that comes to mind is art, and it's so far beyond the arts. It's arts, design, fashion, music and architecture and beyond."
