Traditional accelerator programmes can be a fantastic way for early stage companies to grow their network, increase their competitiveness and secure fundraising. During the earlier stages of starting a business, these structured, curriculum based accelerator programmes can help organise founders and their concepts, taking them to the next stage of their journey.
However, the later the stage of a business, the more unique and focused requirements become. While structured accelerators can be a great option for start-ups, for later stage companies, they can act as ‘speed bumps’, becoming a time consuming distraction due to the prescriptive nature of the programmes. Fast growing and later stage organisations need a more unique and tailored programme to scale, addressing individual concerns and pain points.
With this in mind, a growing demand for focused, sprint-style bespoke programmes with measurable outcomes, to address later stage business challenges has become apparent. This is where our Slingshot Venture Builder offering comes into play. We have repurposed our internal skills as VCs, entrepreneurs and active angel investors to apply the same hands on approach as we would to our vested portfolio, to the Slingshot cohorts.
The fact that we are actively building our own ventures and have experience building successful companies is the type of proof any cohort would need to showcase. We know what makes SMEs investable and scalable, so we can shape a business with measurable impact, thanks to our highly focused and tailored programmes.
