About The Programme
<100 Words

Our accelerator programme is laser-focused on getting you investment ready and actively supports graduates with fundraising. The programme is designed for early-stage, technology-driven startups, including pre-revenue and pre-registration companies with an advanced MVP. The 12-week accelerator combines 1-2-1 mentorship, workshops, homework, and group work, including:

  • Investor Work

  • Product Development / Validation

  • Go-to-market

  • Traction

  • Short- and mid-term growth

  • Pitching

Cohorts of 2-3 startups allow for a more individual approach. The Blue Lake network will offer a community of startups, mentors, investors, and innovators that can support participants for life. The fast-paced environment will see founders emerge more experienced, knowledgeable, committed, and ready to raise their early round.

This is a free programme and there are no fees nor equity required from applicants. The benefits don't stop after the pitching sessions in week 12 either. Blue Lake will continue supporting successful graduates through introductions and light mentoring. You will be part of the Blue Lake Club for life!
