Another list of accelerators compiled in April 2012 by Forbes

What strikes me from reading the Forbes article is how few accelerators there are.

They only name ten, and YC is by far the biggest:

"Sequoia Capital invested in Y Combinator’s funds, and later, Yuri Milner, Ron Conway and Andreessen Horowitz provided $150,000 in guaranteed funding to each startup. The biggest value of the program now, though, may not be the programs, advising or even introductions the firm makes. It’s the network. Y Combinator now has hundreds of founders in its tight network who are known to go to bat for other Y Combinator companies."
