You know what an accelerator does. It speeds things up. That’s what we do. We help you speed up the growth and success of your business.
Applications will open in the fall.
Startup Accelerator Participants Get
Get: Six months of intense training and support.
Tap: Subject matter experts, investors, and highly engaged and collaborative peers.
Access: Free office space during the accelerator.
Compete: Win cash (equity-free!) to develop your business.
Balance: The “long weekend” structure of our accelerator allows people with day jobs and/or significant family commitments the ability to fully engage.
Inclusion: VVM supports diversity and inclusion in our community and in all of our programs. We are proud that startups of all industries, and founders of all stripes, thrive at VVM.
Core training, meetings, and events held in long weekend bootcamps, featuring hands-on training, expert-led lectures, peer collaboration, advisor office hours, and practice judging rounds. In addition, workshops cover strategy, innovation, marketing, sales, team-building, operating best practices, and fundraising. Teams then participate in a public showcase and rounds of competition to win equity-free funding.
Applications open in the fall; the program runs January through June 2020.
