The end of Accelerators as we know it. (en)

The end of Accelerators as we know it. Accelerators (think Y-Combinator, Techstars, PlugnPlay etc) became a huge trend in the last few years. Many big corporates (many through their marketing departments) started their own, many vertical ones were started. After a few years of hype the trend seems to be reversing and some accelerators are closing down and others consolidating into a few hands and methodologies. This panel will look at types of accelerators, what worked and didn't and give an outlook of the most important features of accelerators of the future.
