Stress-test your concept and level up your business

Beyond Beta’s Accelerator program is powered by Accelerace, the regional Danish Business Hubs, and the 13 industry-specific clusters. Designed to guide more mature startups and based on the experiences of over 190 Danish startups across four batches, founders receive individual tools and mentorship geared towards scaling their businesses.

our purpose

Ready, set, scale.

Our purpose is to prepare your startup for rapid scaling and enable you to raise private funding with help from top industry veterans, investment experts, and seasoned founders. By joining, you’ll go through a rigorous process of simultaneous learning, networking, and executing on your business.

We help you:

  • Gear up your business for rapid scaling
  • Become investment ready
  • Find relevant investors, corporates and experts

But there’s a catch. Beyond Beta is divided into three phases with cut-offs every six weeks. We will select only the best startups to move on to the next phase of the accelerator and unlock more opportunities. Although we take no equity, you need to demonstrate commitment, and an ability to learn and execute.

We close for applications every 6 months.

Next deadline: The 19th of September 2022, 23:59.

What you get

Accelerate your development with concrete tools and training

Camps, workshops & masterclasses

Get empowered with the knowledge and tools to scale your business effectively. Our 3-day camps combine masterclasses with in-depth workshops, so you can apply your learnings to your business right away. Then translate your insights into tangible steps over the next several weeks. Afterward, we follow up with an evaluation day to share your progress and gather peer feedback.

Mentoring

Every startup journey is different, and every founder needs a different kind of support. Get access to personal coaches who will follow your progress through the entire program. This unique opportunity to spar with serial entrepreneurs and business developers helps you define your product and address core challenges. Get honest feedback from those who want to see you succeed and don’t carry an economic interest in your business.

Network

Joining our accelerator gives you access to an amazing community of industry experts, serial entrepreneurs, investors, and lawyers, who engage in a pay-it-forward culture. We’ve developed this network through working with over 1.000 startups to date.

Extra resources

Founding a startup is about accumulating resources. We give you a headstart with a comprehensive resource platform consisting of helpful tools, access to crucial software and IT (AWS, Google Cloud, Contractbook, HubSpot), but also the opportunity to borrow our pre-selected interns or a growth-hacking CEO in residence.

Online starting point

Launch your growth journey now by joining our online platform get started today.

The online platform is designed so it can stand alone and provide value. When used in conjunction with the Beyond Beta accelerator, it gives you a headstart in the program and will help you craft a winning application for our core accelerator. Once you start the accelerator program, we will require you to have gone through the online material beforehand.

3-day Boot Camp

Phase 1 builds directly on the foundation of the modules from the preaccelerator and starts with a 3-day Boot Camp where we will work intensively on:

  • How you obtain product-market-fit
  • How to enhance your value proposition
  • How to go to market in a selected beachhead market.
  • How to apply design methods to building your business

By front-loading the modules online, we can focus entirely on working with you and your team during all 3 days of the Boot Camp.

You will meet the different mentors affiliated with our accelerator and together find the best match for which mentor will accompany you throughout the rest of your journey with us. We will discuss your and our expectations for the program and set individual development goals for the following months.

Testing your assumptions

During the following 4 weeks, you will test your assumptions formulated during the Boot Camp and execute on the topics set for this period.

Based on your individual development during these first weeks, we will decide whether you move on to phase 2.

3-day Training Camp​

Phase 2 kicks off with a 3-day Training Camp where we focus on gearing up your business for scale. This means we will sit down with you and start sketching organisational structures that put your organisation in a position for sustainable growth.

Getting ready to scale

Following the Training Camp, you will again work extensively on the course you set during the camp for 4 weeks.

From Phase 2 onwards, you will have access to our resource platform with helpful tools, interns for hire, CEOs in residence, and much more.

After this phase follows the hardest cut during our program where only half of the remaining teams will proceed to the third and final phase.

Getting ready for investment

Phase 3 is entirely customised to your personal journey and needs. We will focus on introducing you to relevant investors and make sure you are set up for successful funding negotiations.

Throughout phase 2 and 3, we will host a series of virtual and on-site deep dives to specific topics like using metrics and KPIs.

You will continue to have access to our resource platform with helpful tools, interns for hire, CEOs in residence, and much more.

Demo Day​

Demo Day marks the end of the program where the whole cohort will get back together and celebrate the achievements of the last 5 months. The founders remaining from phase 3 will get to pitch on stage.
