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!
