The Growth Factory Accelerator is a nonprofit pre-seed accelerator and accompanying venture fund, on a mission to scale truly great companies in the Greater Sacramento region. Their goal is to help founders rapidly move from MVP toward product-market fit positioning them to raise funds and achieve an ARR of $1M within 3-5 years.

Founders apply to be accepted into a small cohort that receives 12 months of structured support. Each team begins by creating a customized action plan and is paired with a lead mentor who will serve as an accountability and thought partner throughout the program.

Workshops, founder forums, and office hours accelerate learning, connect founders with experts and resources, and provide community. Founders also participate in curated local pilot projects to support in testing their hypothesis, developing case studies, and building relationships with potential customers.
