Connect with industry leaders and successful entrepreneurs alike
Ever wondered how successful entrepreneurs became successful? Well, let’s ask them!
During your time at Accelerate, we’ll introduce you to many successful business leaders. You’ll have the opportunity to learn from them, ask them questions, and get feedback on your business. We will ask one or two leaders to become your designated mentors throughout the duration of Accelerate. These individuals will be there to hold you accountable and really get into the weeds of your startup activities.
Accelerate is headquartered out the DesignSpark Innovation Center (DSIC) location in Bryan/College Station, Texas. Within the DSIC you’ll not only find successful business leaders, but a law office (IP and business incorporations), additional startups, and a constant stream of business activity. We are located right next to Texas A&M University and in the heart of the “Texas Triangle”- the DSIC is about equidistant to Austin, Houston, and the Dallas-Fort Worth areas. Just by being here, you’ll encounter an endless supply of professional business contacts.
