Rockies Venture Club HyperAccelerator
Sure, you’d like to attend a twelve week accelerator, but you don’t have time time or big chunks of equity to spare. The RVC Hyper Accelerator may be the solution for you.
The hyperaccelerator is a one week ultra-intensive boot camp program where you’re drinking from the fire-hose the whole time. We’ve taken the critical elements of venture capital preparation and condensed them into a super-intensive program that gets you from zero to sixty in the shortest possible time.
One-of-a-kind programming. You'll get access to concepts and advice that are not available elsewhere. This is the insiders guide to funding and scaling a startup.
The program is based on the proven curriculum developed by Venture Capital for Dummies author, Peter Adams who has taught this elements of this program nation-wide, on-line, at RVC sponsored training events and at the Colorado State University MBA program for years. Now you can get the same program information and coaching that MBA students have paid thousands of dollars for in just one short, but exhausting week. But to be clear - this is NOT an academic program. This is a hands-on, real-world, venture readiness program with insights into the minds of investors and how to succeed not only at funding but in growing and scaling your business to a successful exit.
Who is Qualified to Attend
Ideally companies should have been formed and have completed some business planning work and perhaps have a draft pitch deck. We will develop all of these things during the program, but companies are most successful in the program when they have created a first rough draft so they have something to work with.
The full week program cost is $2995 for the first attendee from a company and $995 for each additional team member. The cost includes daily workshops for six days including lunches. Attendees are on their own for breakfast and dinner each day as well as their own travel and lodging expenses. There is an equity option for those companies who would prefer to exchange 3% equity vs. the program fee. We think you'd rather keep your equity, but we've made this option available on request.
How it Works
The program is a combination of content delivery, mentoring, and hands-on development. By the end of the program you’ll have a complete set of all the information, documentation and strategy that Venture Capitalists want before they will provide funding.
What you will come out with:
- Completed Business Model Canvas
- Exit Strategy Comps
- Completed Strategic Plan with: mission, vision, values, objectives, and strategies
- Written Marketing Plan
- Multi-tabbed Proforma
- Five completed valuation models
- Proforma Cap Table
- Pitch Deck Version 1.0 & 2.0
Companies who complete the program are considered “investment ready”, meaning that they have all of the information ready to begin pitching confidently to investors for angel and venture capital.
*In addition, there is a completely refundable $200 deposit.
