"TechCode's accelerator program is unlike any other available right now," said Luke Tang, General Manager of TechCode Accelerator U.S. "We're focusing our resources and connections specifically to startups in the AI and hardware spaces who already have a prototype -- what we call Phase-II Acceleration. Our goal is to help speed up commercialization for these startups by introducing them to partners and investors, all while helping them test global market entry and fine tune or add artificial intelligence elements to their products." 

With a global presence and especially strong connections in China, TechCode will provide its accelerator participants with hands-on supply chain support, distribution, manufacturing and retail connections in the U.S., China and Europe and mentorship and technical support for artificial intelligence applications. TechCode has also a strategic partnership with CFLD, a leader in investment and operation of new industrial cities in China. Throughout the six-month program, the startups will be given various resources and partner recommendations in order to choose the best fit for their roadmap and goals.

"Participating in TechCode's accelerator program was an easy decision for us because of the company's unmatched global network of resources," said Will Hubbard from ChemiSense, Inc. "The unique focus on artificial intelligence and hardware technology also ensures that we are surrounded by experts and mentors who truly know our space and can help us reach the next level."
