about the program

Before You Seek Support And Cash, Put Your Idea To The Ultimate Test.

THE GAPING NEED, TODAY

How do you put running shoes to your ambitious idea? These days, most startups' quickest resort is to seek funding and incubator support from accelerators and angel investors. There is a lot to achieve however to get your startup from "idea" to "minimal viable product" (MVP) and "market validation" stage - the main criteria for accelerators and investors looking to invest in a worthy start-up.

THE ALPHA STARTUPS OF THE FUTURE

We saw that gap, and we seek to be the bridge between your alpha idea and its critical acceleration curve! ALPHA STARTUPS | pre-accelerator is a 5-day intensive bootcamp where selected teams of entrepreneurs, developers and designers get to test and validate a scalable product/startup idea together with their peers. Daily deliverables are expected, mentorship is provided, and commitment is absolutely mandatory!

THE OUTCOME

All ALPHA STARTUPS that successfully complete the pre-accelerator programme will gain priority admission into funding programmes run by 1337 Accelerator, and other recognised funding organisations throughout the country. Above all, they will be validated startups with strong pitch decks consisting of a viable product proposition, refined marketing plan and practical development roadmap.
