Episode 02: How to pick the right business accelerator program
Let’s talk about accelerators tonight. They’re popping up everywhere and sometimes it feels like you are really missing out on some great opportunity if you don’t join. Today we will find out if Accelerate is something that you need and how to pick the right one. And the price of joining the wrong accelerator can actually be incredibly high. It can define the future of your business and not for its best. It can also burn you out and make you doubt your idea. Now, in my opinion, this is a price too high to pay and hence tonight I want to help you make an educated decision with the help of three experts from all around the world.
I don’t know if you feel like me but I think the saturation of accelerator programs is beginning to reach an all-time high to the point where I personally stumble on a new innovative and disruptive program offering best training, mentoring, seed capital, amazing office spaces, founders’ stakes, all of that on a monthly basis. Everyone has an accelerator program so at least it looks to me.
Our guests have built and ran business accelerators and also have been mentors inside a couple of popular accelerators. Join us to find out
- what an accelerator and an incubator look like from inside,
- how to spot a bad and a good one;
- who are they good for and
- who should actually avoid them
