Hawaii-based technology accelerator Blue Startups is accepting applications from a second round of startup companies.
The company provides investment capital and mentorship to fledgling Hawaii companies and is led by Blue Planet Software founder and Tetris sole agent Henk Rogers.
The first eight businesses collectively attracted more than $3 million in investment capital and “outperformed our expectations,” Rogers said, in a statement.
Blue Startups is seeking companies focused on Internet, software, mobile, gaming and e-commerce ventures and will accept up to 10 companies. In addition to Blue Startups’ regular offerings, this round of businesses will be eligible to apply for the opportunity to develop Rogers’ next business idea in a program called “Henk’s Wild Card.”
The application deadline is July 31.
