NYC Seed Launches Summer Incubator for Startups
Jason Calacanis' blog seed-stage investment group NYC Seed just launched an eight week incubator program where ten lucky companies will gain from startup mentorship, much-needed space and modest funding.

Led by NYC Seed's Managing Director Owen Davis, NYC Seedstart is a joint effort between NYC Seed, Contour Venture Partners, IA Ventures, Polaris Ventures and RR Ventures.
When asked why he'd start an incubator in New York, Davis replied, "We see the same [gap for smaller investment opportunities] in New York as they do in Boulder or the Valley. It's hard for seed stage companies to raise the amounts they need. We're trying to solve that and make them more fundable in the process."
