Corporate Accelerator is a 4-6 month tailored open innovation program aiming to boost startups in specific areas to grow and scale their businesses with support of partners’ global network and eco-system resources.
Together with the Partner we select the challenges and problems in accordance with the global strategic priorities of the sector.
Corporate Accelerators are aiming to building strong ecosystem of startups, investors and corporate executives and generating new industry-specific commercial opportunities and increase their speed to market.
Format of the collaboration and financial involvement is also to be decided at this phase; i.e. grant, initial investment; seed; equity %, etc.
For at least 3-4 weeks Hackquarters opens applications and scouts suitable startups reaching out mailing via 25.000+ contact list of accelerations, universities and startups and creates an updated database of the ecosystem. Usually we receive 200+ applications for each call; filtering this number up to 15 startups in the pipeline; with the 5+ startups accepted for each batch.
During the next 5 months startups are joining an intense acceleration program with tailored training and mentorship curriculum, design thinking sprints. Hackquarteres is matchmaking startups with global VC and CVCs; and accelerator partners. Together with the corporate partner we set up a POC roadmap with the packed KPI tracking process. Each batch is closed by a Demo Day to show off the startup progress and growth for the selected partners and investors.
