Accelerators

The Yield Lab Accelerator timeline is based upon the growing cycle. Each cohort meets in its respective location 6 times throughout the course of the year. This timeline enables start-ups to continue to run and scale their companies, while taking advantage of resources introduced to them during Yield Lab programming.

 

Each Yield Lab Portfolio Company is assigned a lead mentor, one of the Yield Lab Managing Directors, who works with the company through their time in the accelerator.  Mentorship does not stop at the conclusion of the accelerator program.  The Yield Lab maintains board observer rights and an ongoing relationship with each portfolio company in order to ensure that the company has access to the resources needed to adjust to changing business climates.

 

Global Network and Expectations:

Companies looking for Yield Lab support and acceleration now have four options: North America, EuropeLatin America, and Asia Pacific. Companies are welcome to apply for consideration by as many accelerators as they choose, and each accelerator makes decisions independently.  The decision of one accelerator will not impact the decision of the other.

 

In all Yield Lab accelerators, the companies can expect to receive a capital investment, accelerator services, and a dedicated mentor for the length of the program.  Companies should also expect the Yield Lab to pursue non-voting board observer rights and warrant (options) coverage for services rendered, all negotiated.

 

Please see the individual accelerator pages for more information about each.
