The Hyper Accelerator course is the best thing that we have done for our business. Our team has decades of business experience going into the program, but what we learned in the HyperAccelerator100 days is transformative and invaluable. It is an extraordinary opportunity to have access to the decades of professional experience and knowledge encapsulated in the coursework, and to the personal knowledge and experience of the Accelerator course leaders. The course leaders are smart, sharp, engaging, and are committed to the success of each participant. This really comes through in the one-on-one mentoring sessions. We now have the tools with which to not just successfully launch a new business, but to grow that business and realize its full potential.

As a Startup Founder the most expensive thing to give up is Equity.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Who is qualified to apply?

    Ideally, companies should have been formed and have completed some business planning work and perhaps have a draft pitch deck. We will develop all of these things during the program, but companies are most successful in the program when they have created a first rough draft so they have something to work with. Companies who complete the program are considered "investment ready", meaning that they have all of the information ready to begin pitching confidently to investors for angel and venture capital.

  • Do I need to relocate to participate in the program?

    No, we employ a fully virtual accelerator program and accept companies from around the world. The timing of your weekly sessions will be adjusted such that it best suits the majority of the accepted participants’ timezone in your particular cohort.

  • How big is each cohort and how long does it run for?

    Each cohort comprises of approximately 15 to 20 teams. The accelerator runs for 100 days or 14 weeks. Lessons are held till week 14 after which is then followed by the Hyper Accelerator Virtual Investor Pitch Session

  • How is the program delivered?

    Hyper Accelerator employs a blended-social learning approach to deliver content via videos, assignments, the Startup Course Canvas, Live professorial online sessions and peer to peer sessions

  • Is there a Demo Day?

    In our experience running accelerators for over a decade, we feel demo days are not the most effective in raising funds. We have a Virtual Pitch Platform that allows you to get much better exposure to investors. Our Virtual Pitch Platform provides your startup the boundless exposure that it deserves. Only 1% of startups actually raise money through live in-person demo days. In today's world, if you don't know how to effectively find and pitch to investors virtually, your chances of getting funded will be slim to none.

  • Why don't you take equity? Why do you charge a fee to participate?

    Because it's the most expensive thing for an entrepreneur to give away. Paying money is WAY cheaper than equity. We find that advisory is most effective when there is a token financial exchange to value their time. We act as your interim non-equity co-founders / advisors / mentors through the 100 days. We will help you with techniques on how to effectively reach out and connect with investors relevant for your industry and geography - that's our secret sauce that allows us to accelerate startups all across the globe.

  • Will I get funded? Which are the most notable companies you have worked with?

    We do not guarantee funding, but we will train you in how to do an elevator pitch, help you create a pitch deck, executive summary and introduce you to potential investors once you finish the course. The rest is up to you! We have worked with hundreds of companies over the years which have had multiple levels of success. There really are too many to name, and more great companies are joining the Hyper Accelerator network every year, but you might want to check out the following: · Redmart raised over $55 Million from investors · Lazada acquired by Alibaba for $1 Billion · Transferwise valued at $3.5 Billion after raising $292 Million in funding

  • What is the time commitment expected and is my entire team expected to join?

    You will be expected to attend weekly online live sessions and complete all assignments. We also expect that you work on your startup in parallel to the program. The more time you commit to working on your idea and the program, the more you can expect to gain from it We strongly suggest the entire team joins in for the sessions and works on the Accelerator program. Our aim to level up the entire team, not just 1 or 2 members. The fee covers your team so there’s no extra charge to you.

  • Can I request for a discount?

    We believe the right questions to ask instead are 1. "How much is 2x the valuation of my company worth to me?" 2. "What is the value of having top rated business school professors guide my startup?" 3. “How much am I willing to invest to level up my company and my entire team?” If the answer to those questions is more than $499 USD/Month (which we hope it is!) then we hope the question of price should not be an issue. In addition, $499 USD/Month is a pretty sweet deal as compared to equity - equity is way more expensive!
