The Acceleration Program aims to help startups scale up! It is designed for founders that want to grow their business and are looking for flexibility. We wanted to ensure that this Program gives our founders maximum benefit. It is designed to include one on one mentorship sessions with relevant professionals belonging to our board of mentors. Startups will also be given access to a network of investors and Google for Startups Mentor Network. They will be provided assistance on financial, pitching & fundraising strategy. Perhaps the most important part of the program is the founders circles where founders get the opportunity to interact with each other and the startup community. This allows founders to connect with like-minded people and build a support network with people who are on the same journey as them.
