Manos Accelerator is a mentorship-driven accelerator program that provides "hands-on" education, business resources, infrastructure, capital, and guidance for promising Latino led startup companies, moving them towards a fast track to success.
Manos Accelerator has developed a robust program that incorporates all the necessary aspects of launching and maintaining a successful business venture from product development to pitch strategy. Through a selection process, Manos will identify early-stage startup teams and have them complete a unique 3-month "boot-camp" program of intense collaboration designed to help them exponentially increase their business goals. Manos Accelerator will assist these startup teams in developing scalable and innovative solutions serving the Hispanic and general markets.
The goal of the 3-month program is to provide aspiring Latino entrepreneurs and promising ventures with mentorship from successful domain experts, educational and development opportunities, free office space, and a range of free and discounted services.
As a participant of Manos Accelerator, startup teams are expected to achieve certain milestones and graduate with a lean startup that is ready to conquer the world. Each cohort session culminates in a Demo Day where participants will demonstrate their product or service to a crowd of entrepreneurs, angel investors, and venture capitalists.
Manos Accelerator is modeled after successful programs such as Y Combinator, TechStars, and 500 Startups.
