Elevate, the AUBG Accelerator Program is a 4-month experience-and mentorship-based program designed to help AUBG students and recent graduates start a business. Participating teams have access to many workshops, trainings and a mentorship network comprised of experienced entrepreneurs and AUBG alumni. Each team gets access to an initial $2,000 grant to kick-start their development and weekly personalized sessions that guide them through taking their startup from idea to realization. At the final event, the teams will have the chance to win one of three $10,000 guaranteed further investments to continue developing their startups!
Season 2 of the program saw seven teams develop their ideas with the help of numerous mentors through interactive workshops, one-on-one mentor sessions, scrum meetings and countless hours of work. All of it was possible thanks to the support of 20 generous donors!
Season 3 of the accelerator program began on November 8, 2021, and welcomed seven new startups.
