What is acceleration?
Acceleration is the new way to instantly connect with experienced business builders, investors and clients. It is a chance to build momentum and learn the skills required to run a high growth business.
How we do it?
We thrive on pairing starters with a mentor network that helps you build your business. Innovators from across the region are dedicated to identifying client opportunities, technology resources, capital and the key business building advice you need.
When do we do it?
Over a four month period you will be asked to focus on going from idea or early prototype to early customer adoption. The first month is all about your idea and how it can exploit its full market potential. The second month allows you to focus on build, beta and trial. The third month prepares you for the rigor of running and scaling your concept with an emphasis on winning customers and if necessary attracting capital.
We will be reviewing applications this fall for our next session. If interested drop us a note at Learn More about Lighthouse --->
What is your commitment?
You get to join us at the Power Plant each day to build your dream. You are required to meet with your mentors, identify and interact with clients and produce tangible results as you build your business.
What do we like to accelerate?
Social entrepreneurs, Cyber-security, marketing and creative services, enterprise solutions, healthcare IT and the right consumer-focused applications
We are a non-profit entity. This makes us a great place to start since we focus on founders and not our portfolio return. We are partnered with a vibrant co-working community to help foster access to talent, a world-class marketing and branding community to focus your message and a broad community of innovative investors, doers and support organizations.
Lighthouse is also a Global Accelerator Network affiliate which means you have access to some of the top founders on the planet through yearly founders events and are moving through a proven program.
