Many startups today struggle to get from initial market traction to fully funded / cash-flow-positive. This the reason the Square One DSM Accelerator exists. The Square One DSM Accelerator is a full time accelerator for startup companies that are past the idea / incubation stage and are experiencing traction in the market. This full time business accelerator helps companies move from market traction to critical mass. We provide mentoring, connections, financial modeling, advice and support on raising capital along with a facility from which the startup can work. We focus on customer acquisition and scaling your business.
Who should apply:
Companies who have moved out of the idea or incubation stage and are gaining some traction in their market. Traction can include initial sales, consistent marketing traction, or other measurable, repeatable success. The successful applicant is committed full time to their venture and is seeking to raise significant capital or is focused on achieving cash flow positive financial performance.
Timing and duration of program:
The Accelerator program is uniquely structured for each successful applicant. Typically a company will spend 3 to 6 months in the program. Starting dates and specific goals are determined upon acceptance into the program.
Applicants will need to fill out the application documents and return them to the email address below. An initial review of the application will be completed normally within 7 days. If the applicant meets the minimum requirement, four separate interviews will be set up, each with one or more mentor / advisors. Once complete, the applicant will either be asked to join the accelerator or given specific feedback on why they were not selected. Upon acceptance the applicant company will work with Square One DSM to set specific areas of work to focus on, a specific timeline for residence in the accelerator and the desired outcome to achieve.
