Acapella - Making noise in the right circles.

Hi there,

😎 This Week's Update
We recently participated in the launch of an accelerator report by the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs. They have conducted tremendous research aimed to present actionable insights for accelerator program managers, entrepreneurs, funders, investors, and other stakeholders who support and engage accelerators around the world.
It touched many a nerve and strengthened our belief that what we are building will go on to solve many problems within the existing accelerator framework.
Here’s an interesting report based on five years of evidence from the Global Accelerator Learning Initiative, on Do Accelerators Work?
Here’s what we learned:
  • Accelerators are very useful but still need diversification.
  • Startups that go through acceleration programs tend to raise money and grow faster.
  • Customization is the key component when designing cohort programs.
  • Various organisations like UNDP, SecondMuse, GALI & ANDE are working tirelessly to accelerate the accelerator impact globally.
💻 The PRODUCT of our labour!
  • At a product level, we are bringing in Cohort Dashboard as a new view for accelerators to have an overview of all the cohorts running under their accelerator.
  • We also conducted some engineering sanity checks to bring in good GIT practices as a discipline amongst our team.
  • We have started working on building a comprehensive design system with a style guide, component system, the grids for our design on Figma. This way we want to ensure that the design becomes scalable and easier for developers consumption
Here is a little sneak peek into Acapella - this is what the Cohort Dashboard looks like :)
