DreamIt Ventures’ NYC accelerator announces new class, moves into Fab’s old office

A big part of the tech boom in New York has been the arrival of several accelerators and incubators which are minting new classes of top tier startups. Today, in a presentation at Google Ventures in Manhattan, DreamIt Ventures announced its newest class of 15 companies for its New York Accelerator.

DreamIt Ventures is also moving into the old office of Fab.com, following in the footsteps of TechStars, who took Foursquare’s former office in search of some magic startup mojo.

Five of the companies selected are part of the DreamIt Access program, a dedicated effort to launch 15 minority-led startups over the next 12 months. Comcast Ventures, the venture capital affiliate of Comcast Corporation, is an investor in the DreamIt Access program.

Additionally, five of the companies participating in DreamIt NYC are part of the inaugural class of DreamIt Israel, the first Israel-US accelerator.  DreamIt Israel helps Israeli startups expand into U.S. and Global Markets. The DreamIt Israel program is already underway in Tel Aviv, and the Israeli startups will be in New York City working alongside the companies in DreamIt NYC beginning May 14th.
