Entrepreneurs Roundtable Accelerator (ERA), a NYC-born tech startup accelerator founded in Summer 2011, just concluded its third demo day today at the IAC headquarters. After a series of 10 presentations from the 10 startups in ERA’s summer class, the companies are stepping out into the world and raising funds to build world-class companies.

Startups in the ERA program receive a $25,000 investment, access to nearly 200 mentors and three months of free office space at the ERA Times Square office. In exchange, ERA takes a company stake of 8%.

We’ve kept a close eye on ERA’s progress as one of NY’s newest accelerators, and with top-notch mentors including Fred Wilson and Phin Barnes, we’re able to see the fruits of the accelerator’s labors with today’s event. Check out the 10 startups demoing today:

We make fundraising smart & easy for the 87,000 candidates that run for office every year.

We match candidates with the donors most likely to contribute to their campaign and we significantly grow the contribution levels of current donors.
