Founders have raised over $20M in investments from investors such as Richard Branson, Tim Draper, and Plug and Play.

We have also worked with Olympic champions, nationally recognized influencers, and founders of companies ranging from one to hundreds of employees.

We knew from the start who we wanted to work with.

We work with teams and students inspired by big ideas, and young and enthusiastic individuals eager to learn something new.

Our high-level training program is not for everyone. We will challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and see things from a different perspective.

At the bottom of this page, in the FAQ section, we have gathered some answers that we have sent via email over the years.

In today's increasingly globalized world, many choose to live, work, and study abroad (even if it's for a few months).

This trend appears to be a good thing: social science research shows that international experiences enhance creativity, reduce intergroup biases, and promote successful careers.

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.

Summer Session


Summer Session: June, July, and August 




The program is conducted entirely in English. Therefore, we suggest having at least an intermediate level of English language knowledge.

Many people have good ideas, but few have the knowledge or ability to turn an idea into a business.

When starting a business, you always need to ask yourself if the idea is competitive, if it will be appreciated by consumers, and how it can be executed.

Our course teaches you to do this with a strategic focus on the key aspect of being an entrepreneur: ensuring that the product you create satisfies both the needs of consumers and the goals of the business.
Moreover, we have invited mentors and teachers who work with businesses and startups on a daily basis to clarify the complex and chaotic startup ecosystem.
The coaches of M Accelerator are carefully selected to provide the highest level of training.

At M Accelerator, we believe in a hands-on approach to education, where participants can learn by doing.

Our program focuses on developing creative and entrepreneurial skills, as opposed to simply imparting theoretical knowledge.

This is a key difference compared to traditional Master's programs in business management.

Our program is designed by experienced coaches and professionals, all with at least 10 years of experience in university education. While Master's programs from recognized universities, such as Ivy League schools, offer valuable credentials, we believe that a practical and immersive approach to entrepreneurship education is even more valuable for young people who are seeking independence, exploration, and a fulfilling career.

During the program, participants do not need to have a prior idea. In the initial phase, we may organize teams and guide participants in choosing a problem to work on. What we require is that participants develop a project and work on it for the duration of the program.

In the context of the training program, the course outcomes are:

  • Gain more self-confidence, it's an aspect that we find in all our students.
  • Structure a business concept starting from an idea.
  • Be able to evaluate which are the most effective communication elements to include in the Pitch and present it.
  • In the midst of so much chaos, understand what are the requirements sought by investors and partners.
  • Create and manage a landing page with WordPress autonomously.
  • Improve business English knowledge (for ESL).
  • Social and cultural enrichment in an international environment.
  • Make yourself noticed in an international environment.

From a study conducted in LA, participating in training courses within accelerators/incubators enhances the following aspects:

  • The ability to fundraise
  • The ability to work in a team
  • The ability to develop a professional network both inside and outside the course
  • The entrepreneurial mindset / problem solving

The program is structured in a way to acquire the maximum full-immersion learning experience, specifically:

  • Acquire the tools that allowed you to structure a business starting from your idea,
  • Create a landing page with WordPress,
  • Create automations for Digital Marketing,
  • Create a business presentation,
  • Improve presentation techniques and be more convincing in public speaking,
  • Improve English communication from a cross-cultural perspective,
  • Be able to make strategic business and marketing decisions,
  • Be able to clearly identify the steps to take to turn an idea into a business.

With over 10 years of experience in organizing international programs, for many of our participants it's their first time. A cultural orientation meeting is scheduled for the participants. We will also send you our Departure Guide.

There are many types of investors, but none that we know of invests in a project at its earliest stage of an idea.

What we offer is a path to structure your idea into a business strategy. We can work together even if you already have a startup or spin-off and want to improve your strategy in your country or create a new global strategy. We can also work together in the validation of your idea, a new product, or service.

The course takes place in Malta with coaches from M Accelerator in Los Angeles.

There are several reasons why an abroad experience in an English-speaking country can be an excellent way to improve English as a second language:

  • Language immersion: Being in an English-speaking country allows you to immerse yourself in the language, which can help you learn and improve English more quickly.
  • Practice speaking with native speakers: An abroad experience gives you the opportunity to practice speaking English with native speakers, which can help you develop your conversation skills and become more confident in using the language.
  • Learn about culture: An abroad experience also allows you to learn about the culture of the country you're visiting, which can help you better understand the language and use it in a more natural way.
  • Meet new people: An abroad experience can also be a great way to meet new people and make new friends, which can be a fun and rewarding experience.
  • Personal growth: An abroad experience can also be a great opportunity for personal growth and development, as it challenges you out of your comfort zone and makes you try new things.

Digital marketing tools are constantly evolving. The value of work, whether as a freelancer, consultant, or specialist within an agency, is evaluated based on the ability to keep up, improve, recognize client problems, and find smart solutions.

If we consider the distribution of the workforce, jobs based on skills (this category also includes the digital marketing expert) make up about 25% and are jobs that are often in high demand.

This type of work tends to become repetitive and, after a first phase, can be performed by operators with a lower-quality of skills. Just think of offshore agencies. In the coming years, given the evolution of Artificial Intelligence, these operators will have to readapt to new tasks.

We aim to train young people who aspire to a more creative job, which is difficult to be replaced by automatism or lower skills level workers. This workforce is referred to as "super-creatives."

The young people we target are the "super-creatives," meaning, all those who will work in strategy, and design, who will integrate skills with innovation, and who are able to identify problems and find solutions. This group of workers has typically a higher purchasing power salary.

This is a 12 weeks program with 288 hours.
