2019 GW Summer Accelerator (GWSA)

How It Works

Teams chosen for the GW Summer Accelerator will take up residence in GW student housing in the GW Mount Vernon Campus (The Vern) on May 19, 2019.  The teams live there and work in the GWSA co-working space also located at The Vern. Participant teams will be assigned a mentor and will engage each week with a highly skilled teaching team and the GWSA Panel of Advisors. 

Participants are required to work full-time in the GWSA program for the entire six-week duration of the program. Participants are expected to spend their time in the co-working space or out meeting customers or other venture partners.
