We are founder focused and accelerator agnostic

Accelerator.guide is a founder focused and accelerator agnostic information directory/resource discovery platform. We review / curate the best information about different accelerator programs, about the accelerator experience and about how to navigate different stages of the accelerator experience.


We also source leading practitioners and researchers to contribute original insights and case studies that founders can draw on to maximise their accelerator experience. We review / curate accelerator books, accelerator related articles, accelerator case studies, accelerator interviews, accelerator videos and accelerator quotations.


Our aim to is to organise this information into the simplest and most flexible format to enable entrepreneurs to find what they need fast so they can get back to building their business – rather than wasting valuable time on information search and review activities.
