PALO ALTO, CA – Sail Internet, a new wireless internet service provider with a big vision – to provide faster, cheaper internet than cable and phone companies – announces that the Stanford University-backed StartX Startup Accelerator Program has selected the company’s founders for its Summer 2016 session. The Sail team was admitted to StartX after a rigorous month-long application process, with typically only 10% of applicants being admitted to the program.
“We are honored to be admitted to the StartX startup accelerator program and look forward to both learning from and giving back to the Stanford entrepreneur community,” said Kevin Fisher, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Sail Internet.
StartX is a non-profit whose mission is to accelerate the development of Stanford’s top entrepreneurs. Three of Sail’s co-founders have degrees from Stanford. The StartX community has a large network of entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and Stanford faculty to mentor founders on all aspects of growing their startup. Sail internet will also receive access to the Stanford-StartX Venture Fund as well as numerous top-tier investors.
