The History of Accelerators, a meetup with Tendayi Viki and free copies of The Corporate Startup



May 5 · Issue #50 · View online

We build businesses that last. Every other week we share our favourite reads on design, innovation, startups and corporate innovation. We announce our latest meetups and events.

The accelerator model is one of the most carbon copied models in the field of innovation and startups. We question it’s value and application often. 
The model originated from YCombinator. This week one of their partners shared the initial announcement of their first program in 2005. If you ever wondered why there is a 3-month limit for the program and how it all started, the article will answer your questions.
The Corporate Startup is the answer to implemention Lean Startup at scale within corporates. The book relies on a proven framework for innovation in bigger companies. Applying Lean Startup in a corporate context isn’t easy, this book contains practical tips and examples.
We’re organising the meetup together with ING, one of our partners that we actively work with on the topic of Lean Startup. 
To enter the meetup you’ll need to bring a copy of the book. We’re giving away two copies to the first people who reply first to this newsletter.
