Club W Doubles Down On Accelerators With Investment From 500Startups

Club W, the personalized wine subscription service at AmplifyLA, has doubled down with accelerators, and is part of a new class of startups announced by 500Startups earlier this week. 500Startups said that ClubW--founded by Xander Oxman, Mark Lynn, Geoff McFarlane--was selected as part of its fifth class of accelerator companies. 500Startups invests between $25,000 and $250,000 in startups selected by the group, which usually work with the accelerator to help hone their business. In this case, the company apparently has added 500Startups but continues to work with AmplifyLA. ClubW has operations both at AmplifyLA in Venice, as well as in Denver. The company was one of two to connect with 500Startups latest class, the other being Los Angeles-based Chewse, which helps groups order out from restaurants. More information »
