Nike Ramps Recruiting For Accelerator Program

Nike is getting set to ramp its recruiting for its newly announced accelerator program, the Nike+ Accelerator, via a new "recruiting tour" being held in Portland. Nike, which announced its accelerator program in December, has tapped accelerator TechStars to run its program, which will focus on startup building health, fitness, and related applications--using Nike's hardware. According to the two, they're running an event tomorrow in Portland to talk all about the program, and how the company is looking to bring companies to Portland who want to build startups around health, fitness and/or the quantified self.
