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.

FAQ for MA Founders Cohorts

We often recommend founders start acquiring a clear direction for their business strategy and go to market before completing the tech. There will be many insights that will come out from this process of clarification that will inform your solution design process.

The Founders Cohorts provide a light approach to an accelerator program for companies before entering the market with an MVP.  This is a group coaching approach filled with workshops, reviews, and strategy sessions to work on your business from many different angles. 

Many sessions are dedicated to business model elements, go-to-market strategies and tactics, and fundraising. These are all the elements that will collectively create a business deck and other documents that give founders a strong sense of direction and help with communicating business value to investors, customers, and other stakeholders.

We have sessions every Tuesday 9:00 - 10:00 AM Pacific Time
all sessions are recorded and accessible on our platform (only to the founders in the cohort).
To all the members of our community, we also offer Thursday Mentor Sessions 12:00 - 1:00 PM PT with experts and investors.


Each session has an intro and depending on the challenge from the previous session, there is a review of the work done and a Q&A part.

We want founders to ask their "Yes..., but" questions so we can be more hands-on with their work. There is always plenty of time to go through all the questions from the founders. We also encourage founders to DM us (on the platform) their questions before the session so that we can prioritize them.

Yes, let us understand what are you struggling with; we’ve been there!

If you are at a very early stage this program could be for you. We tailor our sessions to focus on the initial steps of building a business. Here the main topics for this program:

  • Acquire clarity on the problem you are solving, be able to effectively communicate this to investors and customers.
  • Clearly deliver your Value Proposition in your pitch and marketing efforts.
  • Understand your customers, learn deep and actionable insights for your target market.
  • Start running experiments with your target market.
  • Start clarifying the drivers for your preliminary Go-To-Market Strategy. 
  • Build your funnels, with the goal of creating initial traction.
  • Review or Start putting together your Pitch Deck.

As long as you’re looking to improve your strategy, our program is a good fit.

If you are at the idea stage, this program will help you validate and develop that idea. The second part of this program will help you start generating traction.

If that’s the case congrats!
can help you grow it even faster with an optimized program check out our Online 8 weeks Startup Program.

MA Founders Cohorts membership, which gives you access to the program and our platform, is priced at $670/yr or $67/month.
Check with us for offers during our Founders Meeting. 

If you're only interested in being in our network, you should join the MA Founders' Network on our platform at $7/mo

MA Founders Cohorts is also a place where you can start familiarizing yourself with funding, business factors and start looking at your role as a founder from a different point of view.
In this community, there are founders at their first, second, or third venture. There are also talented professionals that are starting their own business. If you qualify for the program we will be happy to have you in our community.

There are several outcomes:

  1. A business deck, appropriate for your stage.
  2. Understanding of investors’ expectations and requirements
  3. Extended network
  4. Deeper market understanding in terms of which channels and funnels start working on.
  5. Initial traction to validate your assumptions and to show in your deck.
  6. Once you have validated your concept, you'll gain more confidence in your business.

RSVP to our Founders meeting and join the Q&A session.

We don't believe in reinventing the wheel. Founders can use the framework offered by MA Founders Cohorts to pitch investors successfully. Every month we curate a selection of startups that are ready to pitch to investors.

But if you're almost ready to receive capital, we offer a more optimized approach with the Online Accelerator Program. We can help assess your stage during a call, but first, join our live presentations, so you get a better idea of our approach.

We do much more than connect you with investors. We want to help both you and your business grow through mentorship, coaching lessons, and assistance with your strategic thinking. Although this program will put you in touch with investors and help you make connections there, we are primarily focused on helping you transition into an effective leader and refining your business concept into something much more scalable, practical, and viable.
