Miami-based accelerator and education company, Venture Hive, has partnered with Microsoft Innovation Centers (MIC's) to develop a pre-accelerator program that connects entrepreneurs to resources and support their need in validating and building their ideas into solutions.
The MIC Pre-Accelerator program includes 12 weeks of intensive, specialized training for entrepreneurs, who will have access and support from the international community. The program will culminate in the MIC DEMO WEEK in April, where a global audience will witness the product demonstrations and startups will receive feedback from experts in each of the partner countries.
“The MICs play an important role in their regions- each acting as the hub of technology education and resources. We are thrilled to support our fellow MICs in expanding their offerings to develop startups focused on global solutions and entrepreneurs ready to take on the challenge,” said Susan Amat, founder of Venture Hive.
The program will work with teams of 2 to 4 founders with complementary skills on an idea that is innovative web or mobile technology solution that addresses a clear market need in different countries. The business should still be in the idea phase and be pre-revenue.
Deadline to apply for this program is December 29th. This international program will be held in Pakistan, Chile, Armenia, and Nepal.
