Joseph Huang, WifiSLAM,

and Cameron Teitelman, StartX

Cameron Teitelman, founder and CEO of StartX, describes how the nonprofit organization’s metric for success is more than the market value that startups achieve. Besides counting up acquisitions and the dollar amounts invested in the companies, Teitelman says StartX, in keeping with its educational mission, measures the skills that founders gain in the accelerator program and the impact of those skills on their startup.
