Event description


Please join us for a discussion with entrepreneurs who have participated in top accelerator programs like Y-Combinator, TechStars, and NVP Labs to learn about exactly what these competitive programs look for in startup applicants. This will be a virtual event, and a Zoom link will be sent to everyone who RSVPs here.

There are many options today for founders when considering what accelerators to apply to, but the most competitive programs that offer the best access to investors receive hundreds if not thousands of applications per cohort. By the end of this session you will learn about:

  1. The types of startup concepts that accelerators filter for vs. those that immediately don't make the cut

  2. What level of traction you need to achieve to be considered a strong applicant

  3. How to write a compelling application that gets the attention of reviewers

  4. How to avoid common dealbreakers that disqualify companies from consideration by program managers

Here's our agenda for the evening

6:00 - 6:15 Introductions from founders, as well as the NVP and School16 team.

6:15 - 7:15 Panel discussion with founders who have completed the NVP Labs accelerator as well as Y-Combinator and TechStars alumni.

7:15 - 7:45 Q&A and Final words from NVP and School16.
