About The Slingshot Accelerator Group:
A Slingshot Accelerator brings Corporates together with world class disruptive Startups and entrepreneurs who are building innovative, market changing technology and products.
Corporates who work with Slingshot work with the next generation of Startups, that are sourced through Slingshot’s unique recruitment model. Ultimately, Slingshot’s Accelerator Programs harness the scale, resources and access of Corporates, with the agility and innovation of Startups to drive commercial outcomes, at pace and scale.
Investment Amount & Specific Criteria:
Over a period of roughly one month we search for the best Startups and Scaleups from around the country (and even the world) to uncover opportunities where the Accelerators Corporate theme criteria is met.
Shortlisted Startups and Scaleups will have the opportunity to pitch in front of a carefully selected panel and attempt to secure a position within our program. The panel consists of key decision makers from the Corporate, our internal staff, and sometimes mentors from within our program.
12 Week Program
We run a 12-week incubation program where Startups have access to industry mentors, and also key players from within the Corporate. The goal is to accelerate the growth of the Startup using lean startup methodology, and investigate potential synergies between their business and the Corporate.
Startups and Scaleups pitch in front of an audience of key stakeholders from the Corporate, potential investors, and industry leaders.
Selected teams will undergo additional support for a three month period from the Corporate in efforts to solidify potential synergies between the Startup and Corporate.
