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.
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.
What do we cover?
Validation. Minimum Viable Product . Pivoting.
Branding. Marketing. Sales. Team.
Finance. Equity Investment. Pitching.
Mentors are the backbone of our programme.
Building relationships and exchanging ideas with great mentors can increase a company’s odds of success more than almost anything else.
We will match you with mentors and connect you with key industry innovators to help challenge your ideas and build a successful company.
Looking to the future.
