IdeaSpace’s flagship Acceleration program is a year-long program for early-stage startup founders, encouraging them to strengthen their team and culture, business idea, product or service, and financial fundamentals; refine their business through learning sessions and mentoring; and connect with a community of founders, partners, and potential investors.
Our goal is to provide founders with the support they need to develop stable, scalable, and sustainable businesses.
We have a 3-4 application period, which is open to early-stage startups from various industries.
The top 100 applicants go through three rounds of judging, with founders being asked to submit videos and participate in a panel interview. Only the top 30 startups will move forward to the pre-acceleration phase of the program.
Our six-week pre-acceleration program helps founders achieve milestones in the areas of technology and market readiness through mentoring, smart goal-setting, and inspired action.
Our four-month acceleration program builds on the gains from pre-acceleration by providing coaching, founder and team member training, and workshops to help founders develop their team, scale their business, and achieve other milestones important to their business.
