After two years and five badges running our accelerator we felt it was time to review how we are doing. Honestly, we pretty much did what all other accelerators are doing. In retrospect it was not bad but after discussing it with many entrepreneurs we concluded the format could be improved and after talking to many investors we decided the accelerator model really needs an upgrade. Instead of 3 month nurturing teams of entrepreneurs we trust that one week of highly intense program is much better and accommodates the level of most prospective entrepreneurs much better. Instead of class type nurturing, we decided to provide a three month individual mentorship catering towards the individual needs of every team. And instead of asking for 10% equity that is a year later round about $300,000 in value we decided to invest at fair valuation after completing the program. Obviously those who have absolutely no money, just an idea and no willingness to generate some money in the first place, will not be a good match for us, our mentors and our investors – and that is actually in all our best interest.
