The Startup Onramp Pre-Accelerator is a 12-week program for startup founders who are early in their startup journey, including those who currently have a day job and want to make the transition from employee to startup founder.
The program has three core components:
- A weekly after-hours 2 hour workshop comprising a mix of facilitator-led discussion and group work. The workshops are structured to follow a logical progression from idea validation to product development, customer acquisition, capital raising and growth. Many of the workshops include a guest presenter who leads a deep-dive discussion on a specific topic.
- Weekly one-on-one mentoring sessions ensure you keep making progress between the weekly workshops.
- A pitch night in which all founders pitch their startup and share their learnings with fellow entrepreneurs. Pitch night is an important milestone and an opportunity to gain valuable media attention for your startup. It is not an investor pitching event, although if you’re ready to pitch to investors we can offer plenty of guidance on how and where to find the right investor.
