Communitech announced the new HYPERDIVE cohort companies today — now officially known as Cohort 4 — and these 5 new startups are the second group to be engaged with their 6-month accelerator program. The first 3 months will be a sprint that concludes in a Demo Day that could possibly see a potential investment of $150,000, followed by a 3-month focus on sales and marketing and an additional Demo Day in Toronto.

To-date, HYPERDRIVE has accepted over 30 companies to its program and have successfully raised well over $3.7 million. The new breed of startups consists of BitHound, Clipter, Structur3D Printing, Wagepoint and Weston Expressions. Here’s a complete look at who they are and a short video intro:

    It seems to me like Hyperdrive recruited those companies to have its first successful cohort. They don’t really seem to need the mentoring and funds from Hyperdrive. What do you think?
