Geekdom Pre-accelerator

The Geekdom Pre-accelerator is a 6-week program designed to help early-stage startups effectively pitch their company, learn about startup financials, all while creating valuable connections with local business leaders and fellow founders.

Selected founders meet weekly for workshops, speaker sessions, pitch practice, and 1:1 mentorship with high-quality Geekdom mentors.  The program culminates in a public Demo Day event  where each startup will pitch their company to the community.
