AstroLabs Virtual Incubators and Accelerators

Run your entrepreneurship programs fully online

Online Startup Incubators and Accelerators

  • Were you planning an in-person startup incubator or accelerator that is now at risk? Did you know that these programs can be effectively run remotely using online live broadcasting and digital collaboration platforms?
  • AstroLabs specializes in running startup incubators and accelerators virtually online, with the same practical learning and outcomes as in-person programs. Our unique approach to running online programs is fully interactive, includes modules taught by practitioner instructors, and 1:1 mentorship support by experts throughout.
  • Partner with AstroLabs to deliver your startup bootcamps, incubators, and accelerators online.

FULLY INTERACTIVE

We design every program for maximum participant engagement. Participants keep their cameras on recreating a single physical environment, virtually “raise their hands” to ask questions, and participate in a live chat stream with our instructors. Virtual breakout rooms facilitate collaboration and peer-to-peer learning.

BORDERLESS LEARNING

Entrepreneurs from across geographies can come together to form startup teams and our pool of expert instructors and mentors are truly global, bringing participants the best of what the world has to offer.

EQUIVALENT CONTENT

We cover the same material as our proven in-person programs, optimized for an online experience. Participants leave our virtual entrepreneurship programs with the same outcomes as traditional programs.

PRACTICAL EXERCISES

Entrepreneurs engage in hands-on exercises, led by our instructors in real-time, throughout the duration of the programs. Our technology platforms help us recreate the inperson team experience virtually.
