Are Accelerators delivering Investor-Readiness?

While accelerators do great work at fine-tuning products and strategy as well as building pitching competence with the startups they are working with, their ultimate goal is to support them in achieving a minimum level of revenue. This is the prerequisite to acquiring their first investor after the program.

We got curious about how well startups are prepared these days before they start approaching investors. Are they investor-ready?

 

What needs to be done to raise their chances of getting into meetings with potential investors? How can accelerators support startups individually, maintain high standards and achieve all this with minimum budget?

This whitepaper covers the results of our 2019 investor-readiness study and shows recommendations to close the gaps and help startups get their funding.

Accelerator Fail

“Investors require more investor-readiness preparation delivered to startups. And they need more support to reduce their deal cost.”

MIT reports on accelerator fail & what to do about it

MIT and ANDE report in their study that accelerators do not meet investors’ and startups’ expectation when it comes to preparing for investors or improving deal sourcing and associated costs. We have summarized the recent report and show what can be done about it. Read on how accelerators can ramp-up their investor-readiness education towards startups and help investors source the right candidates. Accelerator fail on investor-readiness.
