SUMMER COHORT STARTING SOON!
APPLICATION DEADLINE MARCH 31ST, 2019
What is velocity labs?
A 6-week 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.
SUMMER COURSE: Product / Market Fit
This six-week tract (Summer 2019) is for the early stage companies that have validated that they have problem/solution fit and are engaging with a small early adopter customer base.
Using the Customer Validation framework and Business Model Canvas, companies will build and test a minimal viable product (MVP) with a growing number of early adopters as they ramp up into and validate true product/market fit.
Companies will gain a deep understanding of early adopter engagement, sales funnel and channel development, early revenue generation, market positioning and growth metrics that matter.
The course culminates in a community pitch event to allow founders the opportunity pitch their early stage company to the community, investors and mentors to gain support from the High Country startup community.
