What You Can Expect

Sourdough Pre-Accelerator gives you a weekly session where you’ll have the opportunity to test your ideas and assumptions with experienced mentors. This is not a theoretical program – you’ll get your hands dirty, and build real, meaningful businesses, with a focus on growth and scale-ability.

  • An understanding of the Lean Startup principles
  • Conducted customer development and validation
  • Created, and learned how to use, a Purpose to Impact Canvas
  • Created and pitched your business, service or product to experienced mentors.

The Sourdough Pre-Accelerator program is based on Lean Start-Up methodologies and building out the elements of a Business Model Canvas.  The program is designed to take Start-Up ideas from conception (ideation) through to a Minimum Viable Product.  It’s important to note that it’s NOT a training program. It’s a hands-on, immersive boot camp, reliant on the founder taking the steps each week to build their business.

Teams will meet and be paired with some of the regions most experienced mentors and have the chance to become part of the dynamic startup network.
