The iAccelerate Program
You’ll learn the foundational business skills you need to go from initial idea to sustainable business, but it’s much more than that. At iAccelerate we teach our startups and companies to understand the impact of their business, supplementing those ‘hard’ skills in business development with a focus on sustainability, collaboration and building a social conscience into your business model.
We believe in flexible delivery, providing content in a blended way and active learning to create the best outcomes for our entrepreneurs. The iAccelerate Program is a consistent, high quality and a progressive learning experience.
We offer three core interactive modules, through a blend of facilitator led workshops, self-paced online learning, individual mentoring, active learning and peer support.
A principled approach to new product development, customer discovery and continuous improvement to ensure a solid foundation to launch a sustainable business.
