Weekend accelerators

Weekend accelerators are sometimes called ‘pre-accelerators’. That is, they are designed for startups that are too immature for the standard 10 week course which leads to an business angel or VC investor pitch.

These weekend accelerators are run around the world – so rather than list them by Country and City – we’ve just included their links below.
