    The Elmspring accelerator is a seed-stage technology accelerator that supports startup companies and is a collaborative effort of Elmdale Partners, LLC and Sunbeam Marketing Solutions.

After successful program completion, companies are invited to participate in an investor 'pitch day' where opportunities for the next round of funding begins. Elmspring invests an unrestricted $20K for 6% equity and is invested in the success of companies from start-up to exit.
