The content of Accel.MN is focused on getting the foundations right for your startup to be successful. This isn't about the legal mechanics of starting a business or coaching you to give a slick pitch to investors. None of that matters if you build a business around an idea that isn't valuable to customers. The goal of this program is to accelerate the refinement of your idea or early startup in 3 core ways:
• Exploring thought-provoking content curated from world-class institutions, innovators and thought-leaders, and then applying it to your idea
• Discussing these concepts with experienced entrepreneurs and investors, benefiting from their insights and advice for your particular idea
• Collaboration within your cohort of talented entrepreneurs. Given the selective nature of the program and the intimate setting, this invariably becomes the greatest asset of the program.
The sequence of topics is explained below, which consists of 6 Wednesday nights for 3 hours.
