Manos Accelerator: Week 1

Earlier this week we announced we were part of only seven teams selected for the Manos Accelerator this fall. It is a three month program that will connect our company to mentors and networks that will help us move to the next stage. We are very excited about it and wanted to share what we have been up to this week.
