LEARNING BY COMMUNITY SHARING

Leverage the knowledge and experience of our diverse community, made of designers, engineers, investors, and founders at their first, second, and third venture.

Rethink the Accelerator Model

We focus on business clarity coaching providing a clear path forward,
combined with a collaborative strong go-to-market approach.

Every week, for 1 year, you have a series of meetings and sessions that you can join, or watch later:

Coach Series (Strategy Sessions)
It is a weekly series of group coaching meetings that will provide direction to your work. These are live structured sessions, including plenty of Q&A.

Weekly Speaker Series
Learn from Founders that already went through the process. Meet Investors and other Experts.

Follow-ups with your Peers
Meet your peers, find a new partner, and start a new collaboration to move forward – from anywhere in the world.

Review Sessions (Hands-On Sessions)
Let our coaches and mentors review your work, pitch decks, landing pages, sales funnels, email campaigns, and other persuasion tactics.

Launch Pilots, Experiments, Tests
Validate and Refine your strategies with experiments, pilot programs, early customers.

Raise Capital | Keep Growing
When you are ready, you’ll pitch at our Demo Day. Then, we will promote your company. Or, you can keep growing your business without external capital. Many of our members keep working with us on developing their sales pipelines, partnership programs and increasing their sales and revenue.

Design your Business with our Founders Cohorts

We offer a guided program during our coaching sessions. This is a 12 weeks program, that starts right after a new cohort gets admitted.

The 12 weeks program gets you started with our framework to build businesses. During our program, you will also build your pitch deck.

After the program, you’re still working with our community, participating in weekly sessions with our coaches, experts, and investors.

During these sessions, you can ask our investors, successful founders, and other experts all the questions you have.

Weekly Sessions
(1-year Membership)

All sessions are recorded, so you can also take this program at your pace.

  • COACHING SESSION Group coaching meetings provide direction to your work. These are live structured sessions, including plenty of revisions and Q&A.
  • EXPERT SPEAKER SERIES Learn from Founders that already went through the process. Meet Investors and other Experts.
  • COLLABORATE IN YOUR COHORT Discover your peers, find alliances, team members, and build connections.

Who is this for?

We know who we want to work with.
Over the years, our approach brought the best results with passionate, creative, open-minded, and generous individuals ready to roll up their sleeves and work hard to improve themselves and their team members.

You don’t need to be 
good at many things.

Are you great at least one of the following?

  • Tech capabilities – You are an engineer, a builder, or a researcher in innovative tech fields, interested in expanding your understanding of business with a multidisciplinary approach.
  • Entrepreneurial Spirit – You have previously founded a startup, or maybe your resume looks more like a series of projects instead of a series of employment positions.
  • You know your Market – Specific knowledge of the industry sector or field you would like to develop your business. Or maybe you have worked already in that field at another company.
  • Product Builder – You have experience with managing, building, and scaling tech products or services at other companies.

Most of the participants in these cohorts are planning to register (or launch) within 10 months.

Just wanted to say a big thanks again from all of us at the FC team. We’ve been blown away by the level of support during the MA Programme. Your method, style, and advice are really wonderful – thanks for doing what you do! We’re super excited to be partnering with you as we move forward with this next phase :)

After this program, I have a lot more clarity in which direction we should take, which tools we can use, and how we can go about it. — Distributing your value proposition in a way that is economical. That was something new for me. So often, we tend to design solutions that outcompete your competitors in all aspects instead of focusing on the factor that has the most impact.

Your session was really really helpful for us, especially because we are preparing for CES we need to deploy these strategies. Thank you.

M Accelerator is a great starting point for anyone who is considering taking the leap to start a company. It provides mentorship, support from the community, and networking opportunities. And the support doesn’t stop when the program ends. They are always there to support the founders through their journey.
