Acapella - Kick-starting the Micro-Accelerator Movement.

Acapella - Kick-starting the Micro-Accelerator Movement.
By Shashikiran Rao • Issue #5 • View online
Hi there,
Venture Catalysts are some of the most under-represented communities in the venture-building space. At Acapella, our mission is to build infrastructure and ecosystem to turn them into active operators of micro-accelerators, and thus enable millions of ideas from anywhere in the world.
This is our effort to build a community business in public and any thoughts and ideas that you might have will help us go a long way in solving this problem.
BTW, in case you haven’t read our previous issues, you may do so here.

😎 This Week's Update!
  • We’re still scheduled to release the first version of the product by the end of July.
  • For the months of April and May, we are going to focus on onboarding our beta-users to test and launch the product.
  • We had a very meaningful conversation with Gene Murphy from Startup Boost and are excited to explore major partnerships in the future.
  • We spoke to the folks at Draper University Fund, Blume Ventures, Inventus India, and Khosla Ventures for our fund-raising journey.
👀 What are we seeking?
  • Any help with GTM strategies for a SaaS + Marketplace company.
  • Product unbundling + costing tips for a global SaaS-based product company.
  • Any connections to angels who understand community businesses. 
  • Directions to someone who could help us in building playbooks for accelerators.
🤝 Partner Update!
We’re very excited to partner up and explore opportunities with Startup Boost, a global tech startup pre-accelerator aimed at working with great early-stage entrepreneurs to prepare them for accelerator programs, seed investment, and revenue through a six-week part-time program.
So far, they have pre-accelerated 265+ startups and have 14 global locations!
