CO.LAB Accelerator


The CO.LAB Accelerator is a mentor-driven program
for high-growth potential startups.

The CO.LAB Accelerator prepares startups for the next steps: attracting capital and/or customers to get the startup off the ground.

High growth potential startups are typically not well-suited for traditional capital from banks and other lending institutions. The CO.LAB Accelerator helps entrepreneurs overcome barriers in the transition from an initial concept to a compelling model fundable by other forms of Angel or Venture Capital.
