Opportunity of the Week
The Sprint Accelerator is joining with other corporations for an accelerator program. This model allows for increased collaboration among corporations and startups. Selecting startup companies that align with each corporation’s strategic goals gives the corporations access to innovative products and services. And each startup selected for the program will receive unprecedented resources from these corporate sponsors.
Highlights of the 2019 Corporate Accelerator program:
  • 90-day program, pre-program planning sessions occurring in the 30 days prior
  • Being on-site for the entire program is not required. However, at scheduled times, startups will be required to be onsite in Kansas City.
  • State-of-the-art workspace facilities provided in Kansas City
  • Targeted, strategic meetings with the corporate sponsor teams to discuss business development, pilots and potential sponsorships
  • Mentors from the Corporate Sponsors and their respective networks
  • Business building sessions around product, brand, and marketing
