Through a blend of their in-house team, my lead mentor, university interns and private business, I walked away from the Accelerator program with the tools to make this transition a successful one and a new found confidence that my venture will succeed. This program is designed to help ventures succeed. Almost every tool one needs to set up and get going is available free of charge through this program. I’m also looking forward to seeing the success of my cohorts in the 2015 Accelerator Program.
