Just a week from the Demo Day to finish up Startup52 accelerator program, another program we decided to join kicked off.
entreprenYOURS (eYOURS) is a new, unique accelerator program founded by a team of father & son who both are lawyers. As we graduated from an accelerator program, what we were looking for was different from when we looked for the first one.
Startup52 provided us with a very well-fitting program for young entrepreneurs; tons of learning purposed sessions and workshops by mentors and guest speakers, introductions to VCs, angels, angel coordinators and media, weekly pitch practices where we could always expect frank feedback from cohorts. Great. Then let’s move on.
First of all, we liked that eYours was founded by well connected lawyers who have been advising startup companies and the program benefits include legal advice (we were looking for a good and reasonably priced IP lawyer!). Also unlike most accelerators who typically provide a 12-16 weeks of intensive program, eYours intends to support startup companies for longer period of time, one full year, for substantial growth. Lastly but not least importantly, it offers cash stipend.
Now with MVP and pitch materials, we are ready to go to a pilot project or two.
