NOTE: Due to the ongoing global COVID-19 crisis, New Ventures has rescheduled the accelerator. The application deadline is now extended to May 31, and the accelerator will begin in August.

During this three-month accelerator, you will have residency at Flywheel Coworking, a key player in Winston-Salem’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. Partners like Venture Cafe, Greater Winston-Salem Business, Inc., Launch Greensboro, Hustle WS, Center for Creative Economy and others are all resources for your company’s growth. And after the accelerator? You get immediate acceptance into Winston Starts’ Explore Program, extending your runway and providing continued mentorship.

Through New Venture’s investors, you will have access to the best mentors and investors in the region, with direct connections to investors in cities like Boulder, D.C., Silicon Valley, and NYC. The group has deep experience in business and a passion for supporting founders.

The accelerator culminates in the New Ventures Challenge, in which an average of $50,000 in funding is awarded per startup.
