We are delighted to address any inquiries you may have. Feel free to ask your questions, and we'll be happy to provide detailed and helpful answers.

In a few words, how can the Accelerator help our company?

We provide direct investments up to $300k. We will help you find a publisher and/or investor. We offer assistance with legal issues, help with hiring key team members, and share development experience and expert recommendations for product improvement. We assist with networking, analytics, and market insights.

What does the Accelerator expect from my company in return?

A small stake of your company shares.

Will we retain control over development and business decisions?

Yes, you will have full control. We are always ready to provide guidance and share our experience and knowledge, but all decisions are made by you.

What is the duration of the Accelerator?

We allocate 2-4 months to prepare everything necessary for communication with publishers and investors. During these 2-4 months, we will help you prepare for pitch sessions and gather all the necessary materials. It's important to note that 3-4 months is usually enough time to improve the current version of the product. Several more months will be spent on finding a partner and negotiating deal terms.
