HARVARD ALUMNI ENTREPRENEURS
POWERED BY: PEGASUS TECH VENTURES
About the Accelerator
The Harvard Alumni Entrepreneurs Accelerator powered by Pegasus Tech Ventures, is a ten-week, equity-free program for early-stage companies designed to give alumni-founded companies the tools needed to scale up to the next level.
This virtual accelerator features world-class faculty and mentors providing in-depth workshops designed to provide customized support to address your challenges and meet your requirements.
The program concludes with a Demo Day featuring a panel of experts and investors who will provide feedback to each company. The company with the best presentation on Demo Day will be invited to compete at the Grand Finale of the Startup World Cup in September 30, 2022, which has a grand prize of $1 million in San Francisco.
Beyond the ten weeks of the program, entrepreneurs will continue to have access to their peers and to the faculty and mentors through an online community that is designed to carry the advantages of the program far beyond the ten weeks of the intensive accelerator. The faculty and mentors have unparalleled experience as entrepreneurs, educators, and investors, bringing practical, real-world knowledge and techniques to the program. The faculty and mentors will work with each startup to identify its specific key challenges and develop a customized program of support and solutions.
The curriculum provides a combination of training in the application of valuable concepts and tools along with workshops and mentoring designed to enable entrepreneurs to apply these concepts and tools to the specific requirements of their businesses. To provide a highly personalized experience, the accelerator provides extensive mentoring support to address the specific needs of each company. To build ties between members of the program and reinforce mastery of key concepts and tools, the accelerator also integrates a novel and powerful “peer mentoring” process.
Applications are open. The program is open to startup companies from all geographies and from any industry. Up to ten for-profit companies will be accepted into the inaugural cohort starting in March 2022.
