Is a Startup Accelerator Right for You?
Listen to fresh perspectives and expert insights
Start with a playlist from Jesse Bardo of SVB Startup Banking, which talks about choosing an accelerator, understanding the pros and cons of bootstrapping, knowing which expenses to plan for, and other helpful insights.
Playlist 1: Securing and Managing Investors
The entrepreneurial economy is fueled by startup capital. When you’re a founder, understanding the different types of investors who may provide you with funding and navigating the consequences of various financing mechanisms is critical.
Playlist 2: Fundraising Mechanics
If startup capital fuels the entrepreneurial economy, its currency is equity. Founders need to understand the various finance and legal mechanics at work behind ownership, as they will ultimately determine who owns how much of your company.
Playlist 3: Running Your Startup
As a founder, you shepherd your company’s products from design to delivery. But you’re also responsible for your company’s day-to-day operations. So, you need to know about business incorporation and accounting basics. Choosing the right cofounder and accelerator can also help you succeed.
