We want to extend a big thank you to Sidec for putting on this event. We had the pleasure of meeting five of the Top 5 Sidec SAP 2022 winners who are all doing awesome things in their own unique ways: Entomal Biotech, Diet Ideas, Swipey.Co, and BlueDuck.

Accelerators can help startups by providing resources and advice. When choosing an accelerator, make sure to consider its prestige, the level of mentorship you will receive, and whether it can help you achieve your fundraising goals.
