We offer every startup we select into our accelerator program a large number of benefits and services. These are just a few of the highlights.
UpTech is a 6 month program that runs annually from September to March.
Our program is broken down into phases 1. Refine, 2. Validate, 3. Build, 4. Promote, 5. Pitch, 6. Fund. These 6 areas roughly correlate to the 6 months of our program; however, as with most things entrepreneurial, things are fluid. Now to answer the question, why 5+1? For the first 5 months we’re tearing apart the business model, delving deep into the market, creating the best possible product and craft awesome investor pitches. Then Demo Day. The +1 month is primarily to ensure there is no post-program ‘cliff effect.’ Additionally, it’s a time to focus on additional customer development and fundraising. Programatic things lighten up dramatically during the +1.
Yes, to get the most out of the program we require that all participants work on-site at our location in Covington, KY during the 6 month duration of the program.
