Blue Startups recently welcomed its latest batch of companies to join Cohort 13, a milestone for more reasons than one. Lucky #13 arrives an apt time, with Volta Charging (NYSE: VLTA), who was a part of Blue Startups’ first cohort, debuting publicly on the New York Stock Exchange this August. Cohort 13 will also will resume in-person programming after an entirely virtual year.
“All startups don’t go in a straight line; there are many near death experiences along the way and many highs and lows. And it’s all about perseverance and about avoiding the mistakes that kill a company. And that’s something that Blue Startups helped us with a lot because the early advice we got and the early advisors that we had really helped us jump ahead of the queue but not making dumb mistakes that kill companies. That’s the number one piece of advice I can give to entrepreneurs: to really surround yourself with people who have done it and can give the advice. And going to an accelerator program like Blue Startups was quite useful for that.” – Chris Wendel (President, Volta Charging)
