NMotion team: Beth McKeon, Keevin O’Rourke, Brenna Backemeyer and Christina Oldfather

Lincoln, Nebraska accelerator NMotion announced today the five teams selected to participate in their 2017 Program. The teams from Lincoln, Omaha, Milwaukee, and Minneapolis were selected after a months-long interviewing process.

“This year, we were very intentional about recruiting startups at the right stage for our accelerator,” said Beth McKeon, Managing Director of NMotion. We searched both locally and beyond Nebraska, which resulted in one of the strongest application pools we’ve seen. We’re confident that the selected startups are going to thrive in the program we’ve built this year.”

NMotion went on a 6 city roadshow to the Midwest’s top entrepreneurial cities as part of their goals to recruit top talent as well as share relationships and build resources. The tour included stops in Milwaukee, Madison, Minneapolis, Rochester, Fargo, and Fort Collins.

The new cohort includes startups in power sports, marketing tech, medical tech, and enterprise software.

T’Work – Online tool rental marketplace
Kronfeld Motors – Developing a new powersports vehicle
Kiai – Artificial intelligence for SEO
fyiio – Training platform for companies
Health Snaps – Patient engagement platform for physical therapists.

The five startups will receive seed capital, coworking space and access to a global pool of resources including over 100 mentors, training, and developer and designer talent.

The program starts on May 8 and is 90 days long. The startups will work with teams and mentors to test and validate the market, build and prototype their solutions, and prepare for a demo day showcase to be held on August 10 in Lincoln.

NMotion will be celebrating the start of their cohort tonight at Turbine Flat’s Crawfish Boil. The teams will be in attendance and have a chance to meet and connect with the startup community before the start of their program on Monday.
