RVC is offering its HyperAccelerator for free to Colorado entrepreneurs
DENVER, May 4, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — In a move that will accelerate the financing knowledge and business building skills of Colorado startups, Rockies Venture Club today announced that it is offering its HyperAcceleratorⓇ program at no cost to Colorado-entrepreneurs based in business development in the state’s seven advanced industries. These industries include advanced manufacturing, aerospace, biosciences, electronics, energy and natural resources, infrastructure engineering, technology and information.
The HyperAccelerator is a hands-on, mentorship-focused educational program for companies ready to raise capital immediately or within the next six months. Developed and delivered by experienced investors, the intense week-long program follows a “Learn, Do, Present and Defend” model that dives deep into what investors want to know about a company, including business strategy, due diligence , forms, assessments, condition sheets and fundraising. The program culminates in a demo day to kick off syndicated investing which includes over 100 accredited investors and startup supporters in attendance.
“HyperAccelerator fills a gap that other accelerators don’t,” said Peter Adams, executive director of the Rockies Venture Club. “Companies that come out of this intensive program are really ready to talk to angel investors and venture capitalists and provide well-thought-out, consistent due diligence that makes investing easier.”
To date, more than 110 startups across 17 cohorts have participated in RVC’s HyperAccelerators since 2015.
The RVC Summer 2022 Hyperaccelerator will run from from June 20 to June 25. HyperAccelerator and Demo Day will take place live at denver with a virtual option for remote participants.
