Built with a strong bench of more than forty entrepreneur and business leader mentors, the Conquer Accelerator provides selected teams with ten weeks of intensive programming, focusing on completing tailored, goal-driven benchmarks. Teams work with instructors and mentors on topics like fundraising, technology, and longevity.
The Conquer Accelerator is a collaborative effort at Michigan State University and is made possible through generous partnerships with the Michigan State University Foundation and Spartan Innovations.
Any qualifying business may apply to the Conquer Accelerator. An existing affiliation with Michigan State University is not a prerequisite. For those startups from within the Michigan State University system, the Conquer Accelerator fills a crucial gap in the development cycle of new companies within the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
Selected teams receive a $20,000 investment and work through an intensive ten-week program. In addition to the monetary investment, Conquer Accelerator teams are provided with one-on-one mentorship and support and resources to enable them to grow their companies, as well as access to additional funding upon completion of certain program requirements.
