gBETA is a program of nationally ranked startup accelerator gener8tor. gBETA is a free, seven-week accelerator for early-stage companies with local roots. Each program is capped at five teams, and requires no fees and no equity

The Program

gBETA runs multiple times every year in cities across the United States. Up to five companies from a range of verticals are selected from a competitive applicant pool to participate in the seven-week program. During the program, companies meet with the gBETA team twice a week for an hour each to refine their business model, meet mentors, strategize their growth, gain customer traction and pitch investors.


Every week during the program, gBETA hosts OpenBETA, a free lunch series featuring discussions from leaders in the local entrepreneurial community. For more information about this series and to learn how to attend an OpenBETA nearest you, click here.
