Is Your Accelerator Programme Adding Value To Startups?

Incubators and accelerators play a pivotal role in helping startups to thrive.


In fact, many of today’s hottest companies wouldn’t be where they are without these programmes.

One key way that incubators and accelerators add value is by expediting the startups' learning.  This includes connecting them with experienced entrepreneurs, prospective collaborators, business know-how, and much more.

As organisers of such programmes, do you know if you are adding value to the startups?

Can you measure the value-add of these programmes?

Can you measure, track and monitor the impact of the learning on the startups over the duration of the programme?

Clarity on the value-add will help you make informed decisions on the right support to grow more winners!

Case Study of Venture Building Programme for Early Startups

Background

We developed a 12-week venture building programme for 30 early-stage entrepreneurs to prepare them to deliver their business pitches.  This programme was sponsored by a local incubator with the objective of identifying startup talents.  

The programme uses a multi-prong approach to scaffold the learning; starting from providing foundation entrepreneurship knowledge, directed sharing by successful entrepreneurs and structured personalised coaching.

The learning culminated in the cash flow projections created by the founders for their ventures.  The projections gave clarity to the founders on the next course of action to refine their business plans.

The programme ended in a demo day to a large group of stakeholders including prospective investors.

Curated Curriculum Combining Theory & Practical Application

The curriculum was designed to equip early-stage entrepreneurs with the foundation knowledge required to be successful. It is curated based on extensive research into the core knowledge every successful entrepreneur needs to know.

Participants were required to apply the theory to their business ideas and seek validation with external stakeholders.


Real time feedback was provided to the participants by the instructors to ensure they were on track.

Iterative Data-Driven Lean Experimentation

In the final stage, startups developed cashflow projections aligned to the business model using the proprietary Kwik Look cashflow tool


This gave them insights on the business levers which needed to be adjusted to allow the venture to be commercially viable.

These insights helped them drive the scope and structure of the subsequent lean experimentation. 

 

Let's take a look at the Kwik Look Reports!

How Will Your Incubator or Accelerator Benefit From The Programme?

 

Structured learning with academic rigour improves performance of startups

Standardised Kwik-Look reports allow mentors and investors to quickly understand the viability of the business model, key value drivers, and risks without the need to plough through a myriad of excel spreadsheets

The Kwik Look reports provide a transparent link between cash flow projections and business assumptions, which can then facilitate more informed discussions between founders, mentors and investors
