We’ve been hard at Sumu HQ. Not only are we constantly pushing amazing new features, but we’ve also been working hard on the business development side of things. Here are just a few programs we’re ecstatic to be a part of:

Valley Venture Mentors Accelerator Program

VVM Logo We’re ecstatic to be apart of the Valley Venture Mentors (VVM) Accelerator Program. VVM is a five-month Accelerator program that speeds up the growth and success of startups and businesses. Located in Springfield, MA, VVM takes on early stage ventures and loads them with access to peer review, real live judging, and access to experts in a variety of fields. So far we’ve had an amazing time and are excited to see what else is around the corner

Harvard Real Estate Venture Competititon

We also were recently accepted into the Harvard Real Estate Centure Competition.

Harvard Real Estate Logo and Description The Harvard Real Estate Venture Competition is a pitch competition hosting start-ups whose missions reflect innovative approaches to real estate investing, development, design or construction.

We’re excited to be involved, especially because one of their core judging criteria is about impact. At Sumu we believe that the community we’ve built has both positive impact on the industry and the capability to access housing for all.

MassChallenge

MassChallenge is a nonprofit accelerator that takes no equity and provides support to 128 ventures every year. Although they have programs in many international cities, we’re crossing our fingers for our home city, Boston.
