Accelerator

VC Lab is the leading venture capital accelerator. The virtual program is free and runs for 16 weeks. There are multiple Cohorts of the accelerator per year, and the Cohort schedule is here, as well as free events.

The accelerator is designed for venture capitalists serious about raising a fund, and it requires approximately 25 hours per week of fund-building work to complete a close in 6 months or less. It is not a learning program.
