What is velocity labs?
A 3 month startup accelerator for founders & partners of pre-revenue
and/or early stage high growth companies.
There are three critical stages for velocity track companies:
1) problem/solution fit
2) product/market fit
3) scale / growth
Velocity Labs works closely with companies in the earliest stages with the Customer Development process to discover a valid solution for a problem worth solving for a sizable population. Using the Lean Startup framework companies will build and test a minimal viable product (MVP) with a growing number of early adopters as they ramp up into product/market fit.
