Join us at this year's summit!
Through a curated selection of speakers, this event is designed to spark dialogue around common issues and questions from those supporting accelerator communities, such as:
• Community Events: look at top community events and learn best practices to run them.
• Program Design & Delivery: learn tools and tactics to build programs entrepreneurs need.
• Networks of Accelerators: making the whole greater than the sum of the parts.
• Community Building in your City: learn strategies on how to build strong communities in large and small cities.
