Frequently Asked Questions

  • Who is Qualified to Attend?

    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?

    We accept companies from around the world and employ a fully virtual accelerator program. Many of our companies choose to travel to our masterclasses when we hold them in their jurisdictions for gaining added value.

  • How is the program delivered?

    Hyper Accelerator is delivered in a blended-learning approach. We use a social learning environment to deliver content videos, assignments, group coaching and live in-person masterclasses, and a virtual demo day.

  • Why is the program delivered virtually?

    Time is the most scarce resource for an entrepreneur, and we respect your time, That is why we do not require you to waste your time for travel and relocation to attend an accelerator program. A virtual program gives you the opportunity focus on building your business, while providing the flexibility to attend the program on your own schedule.

  • Why a virtual Demo Day?

    Having a virtual demo day provides your startup the boundless exposure that it deserves. Only 1% of startups actually raise money through demo days. In today's world, if you dont know how to find investors online, you are dead.

  • 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.

  • 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 · North Raised over $200M from top corporate venture funds including Amazon Alexa fund and Intel Capital · Atomwise raised over $50M from world’s most renowned investors including Khosla Ventures, Draper Fisher Jurvetson (DFJ), Tencent Holdings, Baidu Ventures, and Dolby Family Ventures. · Forbius raised over $75M in funding to literally cure cancer · ARFront raised over $15M in funding from Alibaba Group

  • What if I don't have a team?
