Avoid Stagnation: Acceleration Trumps Incubation!

Startups often experience quick growth as they dive into a problem and work towards creating a competitive solution. The goal is for a company to achieve product market fit, find an innovation-driven entrepreneurial advantage, and become a high-growth entity that creates disruption/value. If these companies fail, the most efficient goal is that the teams quickly identify the impending failure and move rapidly back to the drawing (aka 'Fail Faster').
Join Fiona Murray, Faculty Director at the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship, and Dane Stangler, Director of Research and Policy at the Kauffman Foundation, as they discuss the pros and cons of accelerators versus incubators and the impact these programs can have on your company and community. You'll walk away knowing which resources, programming and mentality each program needs to offer to create a vibrant ecosystem that encourages entrepreneurs to accelerate their learning and growth instead of incubating failure.
