The Make in LA accelerator works with 4-6 startups at a time, helping them avoid costly pitfalls associated with hardware production through a four-month comprehensive concept-to-market programme that applies best practices from mentor-driven accelerators, lean startup methodologies, and design for manufacturing principles.
It works with about 15 startups every year and is currently accepting applications for its September 2016 cohort.

Each startup gets $75,000 in return for 7.5% equity.
They also intend to place follow-on investments in businesses that have graduated and thrived.
Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).
