Why We Founded Alpha Startups

What happens between ‘idea’ and ‘product validation’?
A key missing link…

Bridging The Gap

These days, most startups’ fastest resort to launching their idea is to seek funding & incubator support from accelerators & angel investors. There is a lot to achieve however to get your startup from “idea” to “minimal viable product” (MVP) & “market validation” stage—the main criteria for accelerators and investors looking to invest in a worthy start-up.

Alpha Startup Mission

We saw the gap and we seek to be the bridge between your alpha idea and its critical acceleration curve! Alpha Startups is a 5-day intensive bootcamp where selected teams of entrepreneurs, developers and designers get to test, fintetune and validate a scalable product or service startup idea together with their peers.

The Outcome?

Successful Alpha Startup graduates gain a higher chance of being selected for further funding programmes run by 1337 Accelerator, and other recognised funding organisations regionally. Above all, they will be validated startups with strong pitch decks consisting of a viable value proposition, marketing plan and product development roadmap.
