BootUP Accelerator - Silicon Valley

About this Program


BootUP invites 10 highly motivated and aspiring startups to join a one week Bootcamp that is designed to help entrepreneurs grow their business to the next level. From pitch sessions to lean marketing strategies to product/market fit to mindset transformation, the Bootcamp will cover all important aspects.
We will transform the way you think, learn and execute, give you clarity on what matters the most to reach the next level. You will also have the opportunity to network with VCs, corporate leaders, mentors and other founders like yourself.

Bootcamp includes:

  • Curated sessions and one-on-one mentoring by experienced tech professionals and BootUP mentors

  • Network and interact with corporates and pitch to Silicon Valley investors.

  • The opportunity to pitch your business idea to some of the most influential and tech savvy investors in the world and get their invaluable feedback.

  • One-on-one sessions to guide and fine-tune your execution strategy

  • Fireside chats with serial entrepreneurs, hear their success and failure stories first hand

  • Access to our global partner network of investors, mentors and founders to accelerate your company from the ground up


Your one week Bootcamp program, set in the heart of Silicon Valley, will include:

  • Mindset Transformation - What does it take to be successful as an entrepreneur? Do you have the right capabilities, a high hustle quotient, and resilience?

  • Storytelling and Messaging - How do you present your company? Do you have a story that wows your audience? Is your value proposition strong and unique? Is it pricing, product features or both? What are the comparable products or offerings? How do you stand out in that?

  • Extensive Pitch Training - Are you ready for your 30-second elevator pitch? Is your pitch deck meaningful and look feasible? Is your pitch creating a “fear of missing out” and urging to invest? Are you underselling your company or are you overambitious?

  • Clear Go-to-Market Strategy - How do you acquire customers? Is your business built to scale?

  • The Proper Business Model - What is your financial business model? What are your auxiliary resources and how do you leverage them? When will you be cash accretive? How much cash you will burn before you become cash positive? This is the most important figure every VC will be interested in. We will help you out in evaluating it.
