How Does It Work?

There are three stages for each round

1. Growth Design

During the early months of the accelerator program, we like to think of it as warm-up laps on a race track. Everything is tested and analyzed: the team, business model, solution, etc. Startups also receive training in leadership instruction, scale-oriented business models, customer validation and adoption, product development roadmaps and building internal teams.

2. Product Development & Attracting Clients

Now your team is getting hot. The technology continues to be developed as information about the market is gained. We help manage this process with a growth scorecard, we support business development and marketing efforts while seeking the perfect product-to-market fit. We work with your team through the issues that perhaps you haven’t thought of before. You gain insight, make improvements and see early traction.

3. Post-Accelerator Support & Series A Funding

The final lap. Concluding the round, startups demonstrate their success through a private demo day pitch event for local and international investors from our network. After the event, teams are supported with business development, fundraising and mentorship for 12 months.
