Pre-Acceleration programs help early-stage startups to innovate, grow and scale. The main goal of our pre-acceleration programs is to help innovators to build their entrepreneurial skills and prepare their businesses to enter the acceleration and investment path. This 4-week program consists of 40 hours of theory and practical workshops led by professional mentors, industry experts, and experienced entrepreneurs. Primer Pre-Acceleration program held twice in 2019 with the aim to provide participants with methodologies and tools that are necessary for building a successful business. The participants get 40 hours of education and professional mentoring. Those who finish the program develop a set of deliverables that are required by potential investors, which include a letter of intent, a go-to-market strategy, a roadmap, and a competitive landscape. Pre-acceleration programs end with a Demo Day, where participants make a four-minute pitch, followed by a three-minute Q&A from the jury and audience.
