 IN YOUR CITY?

 

Our accelerator program is uniquely suited to startups scaling not just in their region, but across the world.

An intensive 8-week course includes both online course work/mentorship and an on-site Deep Dive Week with Demo Day and investor pitching, driving entrepreneurs to uncover the value in their own market instead of moving to a new region.  Applicants are welcome to pick whichever location works best, and have access to the global mentor network.

LABS INFO

IN YOUR CITY?

 

A pre-accelerator program, Creative Startups LABS is designed to move startups from idea-stage, past prototyping, and into the market, working with customers and earning revenue.

This program is ideal for startups just getting moving in the market, and provides entrepreneurs a framework for building a customer-centric company with the frameworks in place that are essential to scale. LABS help nascent startups prepare for growth - and to be prepared for a full-time accelerator.
