National VC partners with Packard Place incubator

Early-stage venture fund Sierra Maya Ventures announced Tuesday a partnership and investment with RevTech Labs, a startup incubator at uptown startup hub Packard Place.

RevTech Labs is a 12-week program focused on early-stage mobile, software and web companies. The incubation program provides free work space, mentorship and programming geared toward revolutionary technology startups. The program guides startups as they focus on building their products and defining their business models.

RevTech Labs is preparing to begin its third class, which will culminate with a launch day where startups can connect with local and regional investors and customers.

“We are leveraging our relationships to get top venture capital firms and investors to take a closer look at RevTech Labs' graduates," said Amish Shah said, who founded Sierra Maya Ventures with Boston resident Eric Kagan in April 2013. The pair have since invested in promising startups from around the globe.

Shah says he's committed to helping promising RevTech Labs startups connect with their Silicon Valley contacts, for mentoring and potentially investment.

RevTech Labs is currently accepting applications for their spring class, and will be releasing more information about the program in the coming weeks. For more details and applications, visit revtechlabs.com.
