Accelerator

Accelerator develops a company that already exists. Unlike those of an incubator, accelerators’ programs last for just several weeks or months.

Accelerators provide startups with mentorship and educational items, or seed investments. The final part of the accelerator program is usually a public demo or pitch of the company, which can speed its growth up. Like incubators, accelerators take equity stakes in a startup company and work in different industry verticals.
