Startup Accelerator

A one day program

For early stage companies, typically pre seed funding,  as a preparation for the growth stage accelerator.

Accessible for entrepreneurs from around the world.

A unique one day program from the SF Accelerator. It’s a fully digital live session, accessible online.

  • 1) Entrepreneurship

    Mindset, Culture & Leadership

    Only 10% of startups worldwide make it. The SF Accelerator has 50% success rate. It all starts with a good mindset, a clear culture and leadership. We will do everything to get you there.

  • 2) Purpose of the company

    What problem will you solve? Most likely you know, yet it is often times very hard to articulate so that everybody will understand. The first step in your journey to success.

  • 3) Founders Team

    It takes teamwork to make a dream work – How to get the best possible co-founders. It’s difficult but with some good tips easier than you think.

  • 4) Your concept

    What will you do? One of the key steps as a team. Develop the concept TOGETHER. Not a 100 page business plan but the key aspects of your company.

  • 5) Market Validation

    What your customers say? Ask your target market what they think before you waste a second on prototyping. We will share all the details how and why.

  • 6) Business Model

    How are you going to make money? How will you sell and service your solution? We will discuss the most simple models, all the way to disruptive business models.

  • 7) Product Development

    How will you build your first product?  What is your technological competence? Hundreds of mistakes killed thousands of startups right here. You may not like it – but this one is critical.
