Accelerators

A startup accelerator, sometimes referred to as a seed accelerator, is a business program that supports early-stage, growth-driven companies through education, mentorship and financing. Startups typically enter accelerators for a fixed period of time and as part of a cohort of companies. Startups that want to join an accelerator submit an application and are often admitted in batches split up throughout the year. Once accepted, the startup accelerator will provide resources and services such as guest speakers, advising hours, a negotiated amount of capital and sometimes a shared co-working space. Term periods average around 3-4 months. The assistance of an accelerator ends with a “graduation” or demo day, when startups present their work and proceed independently. The benefits of being admitted into an accelerator are seed capital, an instant network of contacts, access to mentors, educational programming and higher odds of success. However, success is not guaranteed after graduation from the program.
