It has been almost two years since the first cycle started at Avatech and just recently we kicked off our 4th program with new ambitious startups. During this period we have seen a lot of improvements in Iran’s startup scene. Each cycle the number of applying startups has doubled and the quality of our intakes has increased over time which affected our program resulting in better mentorship and trainings.
Today in order to increase the number of supported startups, reducing the waiting time to enter our accelerator and providing our entrepreneurs with
We wanted to find ways to offer more programs over the year to give more startups the chance to benefit from Avatech, reduce their waiting time to enter the accelerator and build tailor made programs that fits their needs. So we are happy to announce that we are launching two new programs today.
Avacamp is a two months free program that provides workspace, mentorship and training to startups.
The program is developed for boosting startups by helping them validate their business model, gain customer insight, understand their market and go to market strategy, optimize their product and build up their team. Startups will also learn about investors pitch and fundraising basics. We will connect teams to experienced mentors and help them build their business network further.
Who can join Avacamp? We are inviting startup teams from idea stage till early traction to join the program. Our focus is to create a tailor made program for each team joining, supporting you wherever you need help.
When can you apply? We will run Avacamps 4 times each year (quarterly). Applications are open now for Autumn 2016 here.
Our second program is a 4 months acceleration program for experienced teams that will run 2 times per year. This program is made for teams that have a working product with all the necessary features, with a constantly growing customer base generating revenue with a complete and experienced team. We are offering startups a 4 months program with workspace, trainings, mentoring sessions and coaching and also 25 million tomans of funding. Our startups will also have access to extra 100 million tomans based on convertible loan. While in the program startups focus on developing and optimizing their Marketing strategy, develop their product road map, create business plan and financial projections. We will also support you to build your Advisors and Investors network. Applications for the first program will open later this year.
