FAQ

Q: What will my week be like? How much time per week on accelerator events/tasks?
One evening event a week for 2 hours. And one hour a week with each mentor (2-4 mentors). The rest of the time is spent working on your company.
Q: How many companies will be accepted into the program?
2-4, but the number is flexible depending on submissions.
Q: Do I have to give up any equity?
No
Q: Will we receive any funding?
Not from the Accelerator, but our goal is to get you ready and connect you with investors, if that's your goal
Q: Will you sign an NDA? How do I know you won't steal my idea?
Just like other Accelerators and VCs, we do not sign NDAs. We will respect the confidentiality of your venture / idea.
Q: We've already been working on our startup for a while. Is this Accelerator appropriate for us?
We are happy to work with more established startups. In fact, you are required to have a product or at least an MVP that's ready to market and iterate on.
Q: Do I have to be in the Philly area?
Yes, all of the events will take place in Philly, and we don't have a way for people to participate remotely.
Q: Does our company need to be incorporated?
No, the current legal status of your startup does not matter to us.
Q: Where will the events take place?
Events will all be taking place around the Center City area of Philly. Venturef0rth is one of the primary venues.
Q: Do I need co-founders?
Teams of two or more are more likely to succeed, and that's what we recommend for startups.
