The Propel Accelerator Workshop is different!

Propel is a seed stage accelerator that provides hands-on support with unique “workshop” style classes and plenty of 1:1 time with mentors and other experts. The program is powered by experienced instructors and entrepreneurs from TiE Rockies and Innosphere, Colorado’s leading technology incubator.

The Propel advantage

Over the course of 6 weeks you will receive 20 hours of specialized classes (10 x 2 hours) that drill down on the key concepts and slides you’ll need to engage with investors. Classes are a mix of instruction plus active work on your plan and pitch. You will also receive at least 5 hours of mentoring with your personal mentor and additional time with domain experts.

Once you’ve completed the educational component of the program and prepared your pitch, you’ll practice presenting it to “friendly” investors for valuable feedback. The program closes with a graduation pitch session to potential accredited investors, invited partners, friends and family. The drinks are on us!

Make global connections

Propel graduates are eligible to apply for the “TiE-50 Awards Program” that recognizes the top 50 startups nominated from TiE Global’s network of 61 chapters located in most major North American, Asian and European cities serving more than 11,500 members across 18 countries. In 2017, two Propel graduates were selected as TiE-50 winners from among over 2,000 applicants!

Only 12 spots available!

The Spring cohort is limited to 12 companies so get your application in soon. Please call or email with any questions.
