    10X is a mentor-driven accelerator focused on converting promising entrepreneurial ideas into viable businesses and, ultimately, sustainable companies. Managed by Founders Factory, it is a collaborative effort among Ohio's New Entrepreneurs (ONE) Fund, TechColumbus, The Ohio State University, Columbus 2020 and other like-minded community organizations. The 10X Startup Accelerator is a 10-week intensive 'semester' that offers entrepreneurs $20k in early-stage funding. Generally, 10X is open to any disruptive technology targeting four core business sectors: big data/analytics, educational technology, logistics/retail, and cyber security.
