    Description:

    Flashpoint is a startup accelerator program originally based at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Georgia. As the program developed and fostered successful companies, founder Dr. Merrick Furst and San Francisco investor Matt Chanoff spun it off as an independent company. The incubator follows the typical format for programs like this, offering seed funding, mentorship, support, shared workspaces, and more in return for a 6% share of the startup. Sig Mosley of Imlay Investments, working with some of the most prominent Atlanta angels, created the Flashpoint Investment Fund (FIF) as a vehicle to fund Flashpoint teams. This accelerator is especially interested in investing in early stage startups in the technology, medical device and biotech industries. The accelerator invests $20,000 in each company accepted into a new cohort. As of 2016, over 150 founders have gone through the Flashpoint program, and companies originated at Flashpoint have a market value of approximately $1.2 billion.
