Open to both for profit and for impact startups, you will leave with clarity and accountability in your startup and a strengthened network of like-minded, motivated founders and mentors. By merging the worlds of startup and social enterprise, we also create a valuable experience for startups focused on social or environmental impact.
The Velocity Program comprises evening workshops from July until October 2018. The program concludes with a Early Founder Startup Showcase in February 2019.
The Velocity Program is a blend of theory and skilled-based workshops, networking, and mentorship. We will help you through the common sticking points startups face as you test your business model using lean startup and customer discovery techniques developed in Silicon Valley. There are also workshops designed to equip impact founders with powerful impact gap analysis techniques developed in the UK.
