Accelerator Lab Cohort 9

Accelerator Lab is FI's cohort-based training and onboarding program for new Local Leaders to launch a chapter of FI's pre-seed accelerator as a city or a vertical program. This program is also suitable for new Local Leaders joining the FI team at an existing chapter. There are 6 sessions that will take you through the steps of setting up your accelerator program, your recruiting calendar, you will be building relationships with mentors, partners and investors and will become a thought leader in your startup ecosystem.

The training sessions are on Thursdays between 8:00am to 9:00am Pacific time and are lead by Ryan Michelleti, Head of Global Operations, Janet Todorova, Head of Expansion, Diane Bailey, Head of Accelerator Growth, and Simona Irmova, Program Manager.
