A Few Of Our Accelerated

Dash is the best thing to happen to eating out since sliced bread! Open and close your tab directly through the app at bars and restaurants.

The more the merrier as Dash allows you to split the bill with any other friends that have the app. Never wait for your server to bring you the bill again, just close out whenever is convenient to you.

Finally dining and dashing is a socially acceptable action to take.

Mimble is the easiest way to meet your friends, family or colleagues in the middle! Either meeting up with your Facebook or Foursquare friends, or any two address points!

Once you have "mimbled" with someone, see the latest reviews of nearby businesses from Yelp. Don't like the initial search results, you can filter the results for a specific type of business like a bar, restaurant or shopping center right within the app!

babe.e.book was built to allow growing families to share with each other privately.

The app allows users to upload and share text, photos, videos and locations with the ability to tag other friends and family. Did your little one just have their first haircut? Tag any post as a "milestone" to make sure the special occasion is highlighted. If there is a post that private for your eyes only, lock the upload screen so it only appears on your private timeline.

When a little bundle of joy comes into the world, their most precious moments can be documented beautifully with babe.e.book.

Nitty Gritty - FAQ's

How much funding do Prolific Mobile Accelerator companies receive?
You get $25,000 for your company. In addition, you have immediate access to prominent Angel Investors who will give you the opportunity to setup further investment opportunities. You also get great perks such as free hosting and services, a nice place to work if you want to, and more. There is immeasurable value in the connections and advice that you'll receive when you join the Prolific Mobile Accelerator, and also in the opportunity to pitch angel investors and venture capitalists at the end of the runway.
What sorts of companies do you fund?
We fund technology oriented companies, primarily these are companies with a focus on either consumer or corporate (B2B) mobile users, but we've funded companies that don't quite fit that mold as well. Companies must have some element of their business designated as mobile focused. Specifically, we don't fund biotechnology companies, restaurants, consultancies, or other local service oriented companies.
Why does Prolific Mobile Accelerator need and want stock in my new company?
Like you, we're entrepreneurs and know the value to the business of having skin in the game (equity ownership). We believe the value of the learning, networking, and coaching provided by the program is of tremendous value and will greatly improve your chances for success and sustainability. Once we invest, we're highly motivated to help you succeed by introducing you to people who can help, assisting you with strategy and product development and getting your product off to the right start.
Can I stop by your office to say hello?
We love visitors but please don't stop by our offices without making an appointment. You can make an appointment by swinging by our contact page.
What else does Prolific provide?
We provide working and meeting spaces, as well as a nice lounge all with super fast and reliable wireless Internet access. Here'd a full list of perks that Prolific Mobile Accelerator companies automatically receive, worth $XX,XXX. Basically, we'll help you get everything covered with minimal expense. We just want you to focus on creating a great product while you're here, and not have to worry about all this other stuff.
What if my company doesn't ultimately succeed?
It happens. Because not just anyone is accepted into the Prolific Mobile Accelerator program, you’ll your resume will be that much more impressive for future opportunities. Your personal and professional network will have grown substantially having met a large number of smart and well connected people who can help you tremendously with whatever you do next.
What sort of control am I giving up by granting equity to Prolific?
Prolific wants to be viewed as a co-founder (we've done it before). We expect to have all the same rights as any other founder, relative to our ownership position. We don't want any special or controlling interests in your company. We won't ask for a board seat or for any uncommon investor rights. You will still run the show.
How do you choose which companies to accept into the program and to fund?
We will choose great founders who are proposing products that solve real problems or create meaningful innovations. For us, it's about the team. Because of this reason, we're less likely to accept single founder companies. The best things you can do to strengthen your application are: - Round out your team with business, technical, and other necessary skills. - Make progress on your prototype or product and reference it in the application. - Show us you've really thought about your business and have gotten off your butt to do something about it.
Do I need a business plan?
Nope. Just fill out the informal online application - that's all you need for us.
I'm concerned that if I apply, you won't protect my intellectual property. Should I be worried about this?
We're certainly not in the business of stealing ideas, and we won't show your application to anyone outside of Prolific. Each year, we see hundreds of applications and many of them include similar ideas. For this and other practical reasons, please don't ask us to sign an NDA. Our application does not ask for your "secret sauce" and there is no reason you have to disclose this to us if you're not comfortable doing so. We hope that our reputation speaks for itself on this topic.
