The One-Day Accelerator provides a fast paced version of a typical 6 week accelerator program for entrepreneurs into a single, high-octane workshop. This is sure to be a highly pragmatic, extremely focused day that will allow early-career professionals to experience intense coaching and understand steps required to grow ideas into scalable companies.
This workshop will help participants learn to think differently. With a renewed vantage point, one will have a better understanding of how to launch new products. Accelerators help create strong working relationships with a diverse group of people by sharing knowledge and experience.
How it works:
The One-Day Accelerator includes a full day of activities including lectures, team exercises, pitch practice and plenty of excitement. After a morning lecture, small groups are formed and will focus on hypothesis development, testing hypothesis and doing customer discovery. The day will conclude with teams competing for the best pitch in front of experienced leaders who judge the groups to determine the best idea.
