Fuel Accelerator To Return, Seeking Participants

Fuel of Fayetteville, an artificial intelligence and machine learning accelerator led by Startup Junkie Foundation of Fayetteville, recently announced its summer return.

Fuel Accelerator is funded by the Arkansas Economic Development Commission and corporate sponsors. For the program’s third iteration, Fuel is recruiting startups to northwest Arkansas for a 12-week accelerator.

“We are looking for seed and growth-stage startups that are ready to take their technology to the next level by pursuing pilot contracts with our regional enterprises,” said Taylor Hasley, Startup Junkie Foundation executive director and Fuel program director.

“AI covers a large horizontal slice across industry and business units, so we’re seeking a broad scope of solutions from consumer-packaged goods, supply chain, food & beverage, security, HR, advertising and marketing, AgTech, to business process automation and productivity, as well as technologies that are direct enablers of these.”

The Fuel Accelerator will feature key programmatic partners such as RevUnit of Bentonville and Catapult Consulting of Bentonville, as well as mentorship and expertise from various regional, state and national subject matter experts.
