Coming up for #RA23

Our 16-week Accelerator equips these startups with seed funding and the necessary knowledge, skills, and tools to take their startup to the next stage and to make a positive social impact. Through masterclasses, sprints, and deep dives, startups hone their work with personal coaches. It all culminates in pitches to more than 500 international investors, partners, and industry connections at Demo Day, which will take place on August 4, 2023, where the founders will showcase their growth, impact and goals.
