This 3-month virtual Pre-Acceleration Program is an ambitious trajectory that takes entrepreneurs with a brilliant idea from concept to MVP, market validation and funding.
Founders get training in the basics of entrepreneurial skills and support to develop and finalize their MVP from entrepreneurial experts. Founders who successfully complete this program are invited to apply for The Venture program which is an immersive growth accelerator.
This program is specifically designed to provide our venture-track teams with global trends, key statistics, strategic growth avenues and key international trade networks for entry into new markets.
At this point, they are growing and scaling as they are aggressively immersed in expert sessions, pitch practice with experts and access to strategic partnerships.
THE NOIR DIASPORA APPROACH
Our venture studio approach is a hybrid mix of an incubator, accelerator and VC model. Our approach is to tackle the challenges that arise from incubator and accelerator models by providing a la carte programs and initiatives that are tailored to specific founders' problems.
Successful graduates of the Venture Track collaborate vertically with our strategic partners, are plugged into active investor networks, pitch to venture capital funds via demo days & 1-1 pitch sessions, and take advantage of our innovator partner resources which include cloud credits, Slack networks and global pitch competitions.
OUR FOUNDER ALUMNI NETWORK
We have a robust community of founders who have grown through one or more of our tracks and actively support the community. Through partnerships, consulting, active business collaborations and assistance in entry into new markets, the Noir Diaspora alumni network is creating value by compounding market revenue and impact.
