PROVIDENCE – The latest group of fledgling entrepreneurs from the Betaspring startup accelerator are scheduled to present their companies to a sold-out crowd of more than 300 investors, business leaders and other entrepreneurs Thursday night at the accelerator’s Chestnut Street headquarters.

The 15 U.S. and international startups began the accelerator’s sixth session in February. The group was selected from a pool of applications representing more than 20 countries from around the world.

During the last 12 weeks, the fledgling companies have refined their products, accelerated use and customer acquisition and tested their delivery and business models.

At “Launch Day,” the companies will present their work to potential investors and partners in four-minute pitches as a “business momentum for what’s to come,” according to a Betaspring news release.

Through previous sessions, Betaspring has accelerated 72 companies and raised $25 million and counting in follow-on funding.
