Talk Title: PILOTING A NEW MODEL THAT IS FINANCIALLY VIABLE ( Event Space: Best Practice Sessions, 10:45 – 11:45, February 8th)
About Her Talk: The classical models for accelerators are very challenging from an economic, capacity as well as pipeline perspective.
These challenges pushed us to innovate and pilot a new model for accelerators that is financially viable and gave us 50%/year growth in numbers of ventures accelerated in the last 2 years and made us reach close to 100 ventures accelerated this year.
