An Accelerator program is a fixed, educational, mentoring program, designed to provide the basics of “starting-up” to selected entrepreneurs. Typical programs include mentors that teach basics of start-up accounting, initial IP advice, as well as product design and sales ideas. Also, programs typically offer a “pitch day” or “demo day” as their final step of the program, in addition to an alumni organization and occasional meet-ups that aid in providing opportunities to meet potential funders.
