Applications Open for Ventures Platform’s Accelerator Program

Do you have a startup that is seeking support to scale? There’s an opportunity open to you at the Ventures Platform Accelerator Program. And it’s only available until February 28.

Ventures Platform, a startup incubator and co-working space, is inviting applications to its accelerator program from startups aiming to expand their operations and get bigger and better at what they do. The program, which will last for 3 to 4 months, will assist them with mentorship, business strategy, workspace, back office support and seed funding. Its organizers want to transform participating startups into ventures that are in the position to receive funding from early-stage investors at the program’s Demo Day.

Startups that qualify for the accelerator program will get seed funding of $20,000 in exchange for 10% equity. They will also be provided with accommodation (for 2 team members per startup), workspace, and business advisory. There will be assessments, boot camps, and office hours with the VP incubation team and mentors. The program will end with a Demo day in which startups will get the chance to pitch their products to investors.

How To Apply

If you’re interested in joining the Ventures Platform Accelerator Program, you can apply on their website. Startups will be selected by a committee of entrepreneurs and industry leaders, based on startups’ passion, ingenuity, market viability and capacity to execute.
