Now in its 4th year TechXel Stamford , LLC is the first and only B2B accelerator in Fairfield County. TechXel was born when first sequence angel investments plummeted after 2008 and began a precipitous decline to only 48% of first sequence financing in 2018. It is designed to give ventures seeking first ever external financing a competitive edge by preparing angel funding documents to Series A standards. The program includes 25 hours of mentoring and coaching, 30 hours of seminars and 5 hours of pitch practice . Over 40 volunteer coaches and mentors participate . (www.techxelstamford.com)
