Living in a scenario of uncertainties by default, startups are subject to a path with huge difficulties – and, many times, they travel this path alone. For this reason, the Ahead acceleration program offers the necessary support to overcome obstacles and evolve in record time!

 

What you will find?

Methodology

Box Image

We have our own methodology, crafted for over 8 years, which gives us plenty of experience and authority. The result? We were voted the best accelerator at the 2017 Startup Awards – and we apply this knowledge and technique in our program.

Mentorships

Learning from those who have gone through similar experiences can help you find shortcuts in the path, and also show you what you cannot see. Thinking about this, we have over 450 mentors sharing their baggage and expertise to contribute with developing your startup.

Fundraising

We put the entrepreneur face to face with the investor, at the right time and with a structured content. Our networking enables high-level businesses with investors and potential customers, who acknowledge and are attracted by the Farm seal of quality.

Network

Box Image

More than connecting people and companies, our network has built a community. We have gone from “one” to “whole”, learning from each other, relating to each other and building together. More than 1000 Farmers are united and present, whether to help with an issue, celebrate victories or drink a beer together at a happy hour!

Team

Leveraging the development of startups is our way to change the world and what drives us to work every day. We want to be the change in the corporate culture, because our work is not simply work – it is a mission! We truly care and are always available to guide our entrepreneurs in their most difficult challenges.

JOURNEY

To lead your startup ahead, we have an extremely well-defined methodology in the following steps:

Laser Focus

 

Full-life immersion so that startups build all hypotheses from the business model and learn how to validate them. We will have contents, workshops, mentoring boards and much more!

Presence-based | 5 weeks

Get Sales Done

 

In this phase, we present the main sales models and digital marketing strategies through targeted contents and performance indicator monitoring. Those who want to stand out need to learn how to sell their goods!

Remote | 5 weeks

Fundraising

 

This is when we work along with the startups to structure the financial modeling and their capital needs. Then, we analyze the best fundraising options available and develop strategies for the relationship with investors!

Remote | 15 weeks

Demo Day

 

It is time to present the accelerated startups to the market, at an event that gathers over 300 people among investors, major companies, mentors and the entrepreneur community

INVESTIMENT

Our proposal is simple: we offer the best acceleration program (countless contents, mentorships, support and everything described above) and, in exchange, the startups give us 5% of the equity.

“But what about the capital injection, Farm?”

Let’s be honest: money doesn’t fall from the sky! Here, our goal is to offer the necessary support for the startups to evolve and, consequently, get investors (including Startup Farm itself!) We can invest up to R$150K for 5% of your startup, according to the progress throughout the journey and the potential for development. The higher the valuation, the higher our contribution!

To sum up: it’s 5% for accelerating the startup + 5% for up to R$150K in investment.

Come with us!
