Orlando Startup to Join High-Profile Accelerator

JOICASTER CEO Rudy Ellis will participate in TechStars Cloud, a high-profile San Antonio-based accelerator. As a young and relatively new entrepreneur, he explained that he is always looking for new opportunities with accelerators with exposure to experienced and well-connected mentors.

Ellis will move from Orlando’s Starter Studio accelerator, which he says was essential to his quick and rapid entry to the tech scene. Already, JOICASTER has served conferences across the country, and even a Dick Clark Productions-backed awards program.

TechStars, which has the backing of entrepreneurial expert and critically-acclaimed author Brad Feld, marks the most high profile accelerator Ellis and Joicaster have participated in to date. The program has been known to attract high-profile mentors.
