Take your startup from idea to an investable business in 6 weeks with our Online Pre-Accelerator

Why join?

Online Pre-Accelerator is the perfect training ground for early stage startup founders to put their business in order and prepare for a full-time accelerator or the first investment round.

We are looking for:

  • at least two people team
  • with a draft version of MVP
  • and initial market research.

 

We will help you finalize your MVP, prepare your pitch and get into the right mind-set to build customer driven and investable startup.

When scouting for startups for our accelerator program, we go through hundreds of pitch-decks and startup profiles, and we see that many founders waste a lot of time in the early days due to lack of some basics. Well, here we are to offer you to get those basics sorted in a 6 week online program with workshops, webinars, mentoring calls and a live Demo Day & graduation event. Brought to you by the passionate and professional team behind Europe’s most experienced B2B accelerator.

Applications are currently closed. The next program will be taking place in Autumn 2019.

to make sure you accelerate
We will be working together for 6 weeks, divided in 2-3 weeks cycles. As we get closer to the graduation, we will be increasing the workload as we expect your startup to be getting more serious and to be ready to move full time by the end if you have not yet done it.
If we were you, we’d see this time as an opportunity to go big or home, namely – to make your team become a real startup and ready to be accelerated and invested, or realize that it won’t work and save time for your next startup idea.
Pre-Accelerator program is meant for early stage startup founders, who have the ambition to do the startup full time and are ready to sweat and fight for global success! Being open to constructive criticism and readiness to change will help you survive..
