What Is Required of the Ventures

GW Summer Startup Accelerator (NEW)

What is required of the team

To qualify for the GW Summer Startup Accelerator, ventures must meet the following requirements:

  • Teams must be actively working on a venture creating technological, social, commercial, or cultural value;
  • 2 - 4 founders or management-level teammates are available to work in the GW Summer Startup Accelerator for the full 9 weeks of the program;
  • A majority of the team members must be GW students or recent graduates i.e., graduated within the last 3 years.

During the program, the ventures are required to participate in weekly workshops and group instructional programming and to meet each week with mentors and the teaching team.

We will only accept teams for whom their venture will be their primary professional focus during the nine weeks of the GWSSA.
