Débats de style Oxford
En savoir plus

Accelerators promise access to funding, mentors, and a high-intensity environment that ruthlessly hones your message and proves your business model. On the other hand, they’re a huge distraction from meeting customers, shipping product, and focus.
At least, that’s what our two teams of debaters are going to argue.
In this Oxford-style Debate two teams try to win you over to their point of view. We’ll look at the pros and cons of accelerators, in a fast-paced, combative, and most of all fun format that explores all the challenges and advantages of participating in incubators and accelerators. Best of all, you decide the winner—whichever team swayed your vote!

En savoir plus

The Accelerator Office Hours are a chance for early-stage founders to learn all about how accelerators work, what they’re looking for, mistakes applicants often make, and what to do to get the most out of time with some of the world’s top accelerators and incubators.
These accelerators have also committed to giving founders real feedback when they apply—no more ghosting! It’s a unique opportunity to connect with your next possible cohort members so they can learn how to move their startups forward in a casual, office-hours setting.
