Accelerator

An organization that helps startups improve their chances for success by providing mentoring, connections, and access to funding, often in a boot-camp-like, short-term format. Accelerators usually provide access to capital or funding in exchange for equity in the venture. While the most famous accelerators have typically been in the tech industry, many are focused on mission-driven organizations.
