How We Support Them
To best serve the ventures, we build a custom accelerator around each one, tailored to their needs and goals.
We use Deep Dives with each venture along with teams of experts to set Objectives and Key Results, and then provide the entrepreneurs with advisors, mentors, capacity, introductions and more to fast-track their success.
Based on the Deep Dives, we design a custom accelerator for each venture, offering a range of supports tailored to their Objectives and Key Results to increase and accelerate their impact.
We help ventures get ready, and then provide curated introductions within our 550+ investor network. We also support ventures in securing non-dilutive funding.
We help ventures land key meetings by leveraging our network of decision makers at large companies – their potential pilot partners, customers, or strategic investors.
