Synergy Law Group Selected as Official Legal Sponsor of Excelerate Labs for 2012

Synergy Law Group is proud to announce its role as the official “law firm sponsor” for Excelerate Labs’ Class of 2012. Synergy will provide legal support and counsel to Excelerate’s ten start-up companies.

Says Troy Henikoff, CEO and Co-Founder of Excelerate Labs, “We are pleased to continue our relationship with Synergy Law Group and we are certain the firm will provide a high level of support to this year’s class, helping the entrepreneurs navigate the legal challenges they will face as they build towards growth.”

Excelerate Labs chooses ten start-ups, from hundreds of applicants, for a 3-month “mentor immersion” and “business acceleration” program that culminates with a “Demo Day” for would-be investors and partners. In less than 18 months, Excelerate Labs has launched 20 new companies–raising more than $15 Million in outside capital and creating more than 100 net new jobs.

“Excelerate is a fabulous platform for start-ups and a true asset to Chicago,” says Bart Loethen, a founding partner of Synergy Law Group. “We are thrilled to be chosen as Excelerate’s law partner and look forward to helping the incoming class of technology innovators and business leaders.”
