What is a startup accelerator?
It is all about your environment.
A startup accelerator supports entrepreneurs through a fixed-term program 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.
We are fully remote.
The 6 week program 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.
What do we cover?
Validation. MVP. Business Model.
Branding. Marketing. Scaling.
Fundraising. Pitching. Materials.
Mentors are the backbone of our program.
Building relationships and exchanging ideas with great mentors can increase a company’s odds of success more than almost anything else.
You will learn from key industry innovators and entrepreneurs, to help challenge your ideas and build a successful company.
Looking to the future.
If you decide to fundraise, we have a network of investors who will listen to your pitch and may be able to take you further on your entrepreneurial journey.
