With the thousands of incubators and accelerators around the world, it is hard for most to be unique. So what makes Actualize special? We realized a while ago that as an accelerator, we could only provide so much for startups founders themselves. That's why we changed our curriculum to truly help a startup at it's foundation.
"Great Founders Lead Great Startups" isn't just something we slapped on a fridge magnet (yet). It takes a strong leader to concept, develop, and ultimately launch a business. That's why our entire methodology is focused on the startup Founder as a path to a strong business. That belief is our passion. We want to turn your idea in a reality.
You've already heard us mention it frequently, we care about Founders. One of the most difficult things Founders conquer is the ability to be objective about something they are creating. Understanding what a startup hopes to accomplish will always make both stronger. With that said, here are the 3 traits we always look for in both a Founder, and a Startup:
Don't point out a problem without proposing a solution. We love taking action almost as much as we love being able to provide an actionable answer to a daunting problem.
We love startups that create a sense of responsibility between themselves, their startup, and their community. Go "all-in" to make a difference.
New ventures depend on a precise balance of timing and marketability. Having a product to offer doesn't mean much without first understanding the consumer that needs it.
We offer several services to help startups grow, but the Venture Development Program is our signature startup service. It details startup founders with a holistic approach to the entire startup process but it's true value lies in the curated emphasis on the individual Founder.
V_Dev will challenge you. But for a true entrepreneur, we already expect you to be excited about that. It's also a challenge getting invited into our V_Dev Program. Taking a startup through each stage requires careful attention from our team, and we expect our Founders to be ready for it. We strongly encourage you to Pitch your startup idea to our team. We take each pitch seriously and intend to offer advice and direction on each.
