Access Our Platform

Founders' platform

Not the Usual Startup Program

We clearly identify all the business factors and build a map that helps a founder make smart decisions, gain a clear direction, and connect their business to the right market (yes, we focus on GTM)

It is a personalized program that guides founders through a journey of understanding.

In a few words, we do something that most accelerators don't do.

We have a coaching approach to business development for founders and teams at different stages:

Each program has its unique value, amount of hours, requirements, and selection process.

MA Startup 2019
After this startup program, I have a lot more clarity in which direction we should take, which tools we can use, and how we can go about it. -- Distributing your value proposition in a way that is economical. That was something new for me. So often, we tend to design solutions that outcompete your competitors in all aspects instead of focusing on the factor that has the most impact.
Expanding in the US market for us isn't just localization. It is a second startup stage. M Accelerator Startup program is really good for Global Entrepreneurs.

M Accelerator has helped a lot in making a pitch deck from scratch by helping show the problem from various angles. Sessions vary from different topics such as marketing, presentation, speech which syncs into the pitch creation. In addition, one-on-one sessions help to ask any questions or help you need. Thank you.

Join our meeting to learn more about our Venture Fund and Accelerator Program. 


Are you coming to Los Angeles?

Don’t worry about this as we have you covered – we will offer you various options on places to stay.

Whether traveling as an individual, in a group, with your team or perhaps you are an executive bringing your family on this trip. 

LA Is The Third-Largest Startup Ecosystem in the U.S., with more than 4,000 Venture-backed startups.

It is so much more than what you see in the movies: 221,000 jobs in Entertainment Industry, 10.2M residents, 224 different languages, 344,600 Manufacturing jobs, 231,000 Bioscience jobs, 368,580 High Tech jobs, 10,305 Foreign Firms, $807B GDP,


M ACCELERATOR is an innovative and hands-on approach to entrepreneurship.


Yes, share your struggles with us; we’ve been there!

We can help you no matter which stages your project is in because this program is customized for you.

We tailor our Founders Cohorts to focus on the many steps before developing your first Minimum Viable Product (MPV). In general, we work with startups in several different stages and cover the following and more:

  • Business strategy design, Business Model Validation, bootstrapping, growth hacking,
  • Business strategy validation and MVP design approach
  • Product Market Fit, Sales strategy, pricing,
  • New market discovery -- such as the case of a startup in the second phase of international expansion.
  • Pitch Deck, Fundraising strategy, investor relations, 

Our Startup Program is a very customized approach, with only 6 companies in each cohort. It mainly depends on your goal and next step.

Besides digital marketing solutions for your bootstrap, we can guide technology solutions. MEDIARS LLC has vast experience designing and developing proprietary and customized technology solutions.

Join our Founders Meeting we address all of this.

Yes! Our programs are tailored for international participants. Many international businesses are entering the US market, better to start with a partner like us to work on your business model and Go-To-Market for North America or the United States market.

A note for the in-person idea stage programs.
The fact that you are away from home, out of your comfort zone, will encourage you to see the world a little differently, be inspired, and think outside the box. To our ESL participants, we offer a 36-hour English Business Workshop just for you to hone your crucial English communication skills, along with all of the other workshops.

If you are at the idea stage, it's clear that you take the "Ideation Track." Learn More about our 1-year membership with the Founders Cohort.

Even if you are simply at the stage where you have an idea, we can help you validate it and translate it into a real business strategy and plan. If, after meeting with our experts, you decide it’s not the right idea for you, we will work with you and help you find a great alternative business idea that you can build from scratch using this program and our “Design Thinking” method as a launching pad.

If that’s the case, congratulations!
We have an Online 8 weeks Accelerator program + a lifetime membership  and a Scale-Up 1:1 Coaching approach

Yes, we do!
