What is a startup accelerator?

It is all about your environment.

A startup accelerator supports entrepreneurs through a fixed-term programme that includes mentorship, connections and educational content. It is an immersive experience, aiming to accelerate the growth of early-stage ventures by compressing years’ worth of learning into just a few months.

Programme  structure

We are fully remote.

The 10 week programme is designed to fit around other commitments and a full-time job. Sessions are recorded and all content is accessible online, so you will be able to work at your own pace - wherever you are in the world.


Being part of the 10 week Yachting Ventures accelerator has genuinely streamlined our business. With the help of the industry leading mentors and friendly cohort, we have been able to declutter our business description into a confident and concise pitch with a clear vision.

The mentor sessions allowed us to ask questions directly to industry pioneers, giving us valuable feedback about our business. We have built up an incredible new network of contacts and friends during the 10 week process and can’t thank YV enough for all the hard work and organisation throughout.
