The future of startup accelerators

By Ben Yoskovitz

I’m not much of a prognosticator, but recently Sarah Needleman from the Wall Street Journal called me to ask my thoughts about startup accelerators. She had found a blog post I had written (How to maximize the value of mentors in startup accelerators), and wanted my input on a story she was writing.

Funnily enough, I had just finished speaking at the Michigan Lean Startup Conference about accelerators, using my experience at Year One Labs and my involvement with others since then, as a case study for the future. It was a great event; tons of fun.

Unfortunately, my comments didn’t make it into Sarah’s article. But that’s OK, it was fun to speak with Sarah just the same. Here’s the story: Startups crowd ‘accelerators.’

Since my comments aren’t in the story, I thought I’d share some of my thoughts on accelerators in general, and where I see the future going.

  • Francis Moran : Hi, Jo. Thanks for the comment. I had hoped to attend the conference but it was sold out. Maybe next year. Not sure if your collaboration comment was directed at me or CCDI. If me, please drop me an email at francis@francis-moran.com and tell me more about what you have in mind.

  • Jo Head : I share your disappointment with the Expo - it was barely reflective of the ambition of the organisers and not at all reflective of the excitement, passion and creativity that I have come to love. I thought I was going to the Expo and booked the conference in error - the biggest & best mistake I have ever made. I feel inspired to see how I can help to deliver the Expo objective and to open the gateway. I enquired as to the export process through the CCDI ( Cape Craft and Design Institute ) whose role it is to promote export - they asked me what I meant by process. Their database (when you can access it) is even more disappointing than the Expo. Is there an opportunity to collaborate?
