The acceleration program
Our acceleration program is based on the lean startup methodology and articulated around 3 pillars :
- Customer desirability (market study & benchmark, value proposition, customer experimentation…)
- Solution feasibility (proof of concept, product functionalities definition, MVP…)
- Business viability (business model, risk assesment, cost benefit analysis…)
The 6 month acceleration program are segmented into 3 loops where startups build the MVP, test it and based on customers feedbacks pivote or continue.
At the end of each loop concrete deliverables are expected.
