If you’re a startup with an optics-, photonics-, or imaging-enabled application, you should know about Luminate. As the world’s only business accelerator for OPI startups, Luminate can help get your technology from lab to launch faster. The program recently awarded $2M in follow-on funding to companies in its second cohort, and applications for cohort III are now open.

Apply for a chance to receive comprehensive support, including:

● A $100,000 investment at enrollment, plus a chance to compete for up to $2M in follow-on funding

● Access to investors, a world-class advisory board, industry experts, and sponsors like Sony, Thor Labs, and IMAX who can help you scale your startup

● Mentoring and lab facilities that provide the specific business and technical support you need

For Luminate cohort II participant and $1M first-place winner, Ovitz, the accelerator provided the investment they needed to grow and scale their business. “Winning Luminate will allow us to broaden our pilot test and get ready for announcing our product early next year,” said Felix Kim, CEO, Ovitz.

Space is limited in this highly competitive program — OPI startups are encouraged to apply before September 23.
