DesignSpark Accelerate Goal: Business Knowledge

Learn skills required to grow and sustain a new company

Goal 3 Logo

Do the phrases “financial projections,” “valuation,” or “pitch deck” sound familiar to you? Through the accelerate program, you’ll become familiar with these tools (plus many more) and learn the skills necessary to incorporate them into your startup’s success.

While onboarding into Accelerate, we’ll baseline your current business acumen. Throughout the program, we’ll have learning opportunities designed to develop your general business skills & knowledge. We will provide business education through activities including:

  • Guest speakers
  • Lunch & learn
  • Online learning courses
  • Pitch reviews
  • Templates (finance, accounting, pitch decks)
