Fledge is a global network of conscious company accelerators and seed funds that help entrepreneurs create impactful companies and co-ops at scale through short, intense programs filled with education, guidance, and a massive amount of mentorship.
Fledge operates programs in many cities around the world, each running a variation of our intense, two month, accelerator program, which includes the following components:
The Fledge network includes hundreds of mentors. That term is broadly defined, including everyone and anyone who volunteers their time to provide advice and to share experience with the teams.
The Fledge mentors cover every skill required to create a successful startup, from business strategy and tactics to marketing and sales, financial planning, pitch coaching, and investors themselves providing feedback on fundraising and investor pitches.
Fledglings can expect to sit down 1-on-1 with at least a dozen mentors, meet many more at the various events, and be connected to whomever might best help their company move forward. Most fledglings achieve “mentor whiplash” after a few weeks, flooded with advice, to a scale unimaginable and to a point where no more advice can help.
