Looking to apply to our accelerator?
We typically have many more applicants than the limited number of spots in our accelerator. Please review the below for more information on the criteria we use to determine who would be a good fit for our program and the profile of previously successful applicants.
While we review every application thoroughly and holistically, we provide this aggregate data to illustrate the general type of company that receives the most value out of our program and will be likely to be accepted.
Learn more about our accelerator on our Program page.
We are looking for companies with a team of founders and/or senior leaders. Solo founders typically find it challenging to fully absorb our consulting & coaching engagement. We also want to ensure at least one full-time member can commit to participation in the program.
We look for recurring revenue from small businesses and evidence of plans beyond ideation for startups (e.g., beta version of a minimal viable product or previous accelerator/incubator experience).
We look for companies with an active business challenge that our consultants and experts will be well-suited to help with. This means that not every company that aligns demographically will be a good fit. Also, the same company may be a good fit one year, but not another - we encourage re-applications!
