What is Blue Lake VC?
The programme runs for 3 months, combining 1-2-1 mentorships, workshops, homework and group work. Acceleration runs in small cohorts of 2-3 startups allowing for an individual approach as well as benefiting from learning and growing together with other startups.
Outside of your cohort you will be joining a wider community of startups, mentors, investors and innovators spanning across past and existing cohorts, and the existing Blue Lake network.
The fast-paced and exclusive environment will see founders emerge more experienced, knowledgeable, committed and ready to raise their seed or pre-seed round. They will gain invaluable connections and mentors and a community that will support them for life.
