The most successful accelerators are the ones that can consistently attract the best founders and, in turn, venture investors. That’s becoming increasingly more difficult for any single program to do, as the number of accelerators continues to surge and virtual-first programs create global competition.
Max Menke, the Co-founder of GrowthX, a seed-stage venture capital fund that invests in B2B founders from rising cities, believes that the future of accelerator programs belongs to building a cohesive network of accelerator partners to work strength-to-strength and create bridges for ongoing startup growth. He calls this concept the ‘Accelerator Stack.’
It features a tangible series of separate accelerator programs that share common values but specialize in specific stages along the founder journey.
By taking a collaborative, partnership-driven approach, an Accelerator Stack overcomes the limitations of any single accelerator’s business model and provides ongoing support to founders throughout their entire startup journey. What’s more, most founders already go through multiple programs, but it’s hard to know which is the right fit and there usually isn’t much guidance post-demo day.
Join us on May 25th as we hear more from Max on the subject of how we can take advantage of the Accelerator Stack to stay relevant in 2023.
