Hit the gas on your startup!
The Velocity business accelerator helps entrepreneurs develop viable businesses rooted in creativity. This 10-week, cohort-based program includes a robust curriculum (with in-person and remote options), skilled facilitators, and a customized mentor team of subject matter experts from every business discipline. Master business basics, solidify your positioning, and refine your pitch for a chance to win a $25k interest-free loan with no equity taken.
There is no cost to apply. If selected, the fee for participants is $995. The fee will cover the cost of the 10-week course, workbooks, access to mentors, meals and accommodations for Kick-off Weekend (Sep. 8 – 11) and Velocity Week (Oct. 30th – Nov. 4th) in Winston-Salem, NC.
