SCAPE is a 4 month accelerator program that exists to encourage entrepreneurism and foster economic growth in Southwest Colorado.
Each selected company gets up to $30,000 in funding in exchange for equity, to be used for startup requirements including corporate formation, patent filing, website development, product development, and professional services.
During the program each venture will work to complete the process milestone steps on a rigorous schedule with mentoring support at each step. We use the “Lean Startup” model and focus on key issues that will need to be addressed in the Effective Investor Presentation, used as the basis for the pitch to investors at the end of the program.
The companies will be housed together at SCAPE HQ and will not pay any fees for office space or mentoring. They will emerge “market and investor ready”, increasing their chances to be successful growing companies based in SW CO.
