Valley Venture Mentors (VVM) is now accepting applications for the 2019 Startup Accelerator. The Startup Accelerator is designed to help participating startups and early-stage companies speed up the growth and success of their businesses.
Participants engage in five months of long-weekend style boot camps, much like an executive MBA program, in Springfield, MA. These sessions include intense training, connections with incredible subject matter experts, Entrepreneurs and Executives In Residence, investors, and their high growth peers, access to free office space at the Springfield Innovation Center and the opportunity to compete for up to $50,000 in equity-free funding.
According to past award winner Julie Bliss Mullen, of Aclarity, LLC, “VVM has helped to refine our business strategy, communicate our technology to broad audiences, and realize our potential locally and globally. The network and advice that VVM has exposed us to will be pivotal to ensuring our success for years to come. We have been introduced to over 50 investors in-person and have been positioned for our first round of investment which would have taken many months if we were not part of the program. We are very grateful to be a part of the VVM family and will continue to give back so other startups can have the wonderful opportunity we had.”
There are only 36 spots available! Qualified startups are encouraged to apply online before the November 2nd deadline by visiting www.vvmaccelerator.com.
