The heart of the Collective’s Startup mission is an interlinked set of accelerators to bring startups from prototype to first commercial pilot to growth state. The components of the acceleration portfolio include:
largely self-guided online platform to help climate entreprenuership with prototypes or business model innovation to transition to a business accelerator, focusing on improving business literacy especially around key themes (e.g., identifying customer, explaining value proposition) necessary to make the most of a business accelerator. Coming soon
A first business accelerator to help develop a basic business plan and test key 1-2 hypothesis to see whether the startup is ready to begin an intensive business accelerator. Read more.
