What is preacceleration and how does it differ from acceleration?

It is a studying program for business development from an idea stage to prototype designing or its trading. It gives your idea a surge as well as a professional support of lecturers and mentors.  

What stage should your idea be realized on?

On the understanding of what the team is able to do. And putting the maximum of your efforts during the program to achieve this goal.

Will the Center support teams after pre-acceleration?

Center for Entrepreneurship neither take any share of equity in team businesses nor fund them, however we provide access for mentors, experts in their industry, supporting you from the initial to final stages of your idea realization. We also arrange Demo day, where you can introduce your idea to the press, clients and prospective investors and possibly receive their financial backing provided they are interested in your idea.  

Is distance education possible?

Teams are allowed to attend acceleration provided that at least 2/3 of the team is physically present and the rest of the team works on the project remotely. Remote participation is possible provided permanent member rotation in a way that all team members are physically present at least 75% of acceleration program at Center for Entrepreneurship.
