Accelerator” is a business acceleration or advancement program aimed at taking a Startup to the next phase of its growth. Similar to an Incubator, an Accelerator provides the Startup with mentorship, resources, and connections to potential Investors. Where an Incubator is a longer-term program that primarily focuses on working with Startups in their infancy, an Accelerator is a shorter-term program that helps Startups that are looking to transition into a more mature growth phase of its business.
