Are you trying to figure out if an accelerator program will really "accelerate" your company's progress? This session will explore the outcomes, both expected and unexpected, from participation in accelerators. You'll be getting an inside look from experienced entrepreneurs in diverse industries including tech, biotech, and fashion tech, who have leveraged these programs to gain the most value from them. They will provide insights and best practices to allow you to optimize timing of participation based on your company’s current needs, and share best practices to ensure the benefit from participation endures long after "graduation."
