Should you take your startup through an accelerator, like 500 Startups or Rocketspace? What kind of equity do they usually want and what do you, the entrepreneur, get in return? Is it worth it? Don Dodge, long-time investor and startups advocate, shares his experience. You learn a lot in Accelerator programs as you would be part of Boot camps where you work with other founders who solve different problems.
Accelerators helps in providing the following tools: (for example Y Combinator/ Tech Stars)
1. Expert Mentorship
2. Features to Launch a Viable Product.
3. Training on How to Pitch before audience and VC / Investors
4. Demo Day/Investor Day - Exposure to Ivestors and Press
