M Accelerator Hackathon

Let's figure out the Future Together!

Live Sessions with our Coaches

Entrepreneurs are tasked with figuring out the unknown. A crisis also creates the same situation.

This gives us a chance to practice modeling what the future could look like for a specific business model. Let's do it together!

2 weeks program

This is not the usual online [virtual] program

A Multimodal Approach to discover a new point of view.

We do not provide theories, we create an environment for a selected group of people to do the work, online [virtually] or at our space [in-person] in Los Angeles.

Join our interactive sessions, our approach, our hands-on experience, your entrepreneurial spirit, and your creativity.

It is a 2 weeks program, a hackathon if you like, and we are selecting teams that with our guidance will study and model a prediction for a specific business case.
