We invest $70,000 of non-dilutive, non-recourse capital into each of the
participating startups in our cohorts. The terms are simple: 0% interest, 0%
equity, 1x payback triggered by revenue milestones after 18 months so that
another founder can have the same opportunity we gave you.
No, we do not take equity and we do not take board seats in the companies
participating in the accelerator. We exist to raise the bar for underestimated
founders and not only increase the value of your company but increase your
ownership in it as well.
The accelerator runs for a period of 6 months, with digital workshops,
programming, and mentorship taking place each week. The first 3 months are focused on implementation and acceleration while the last 3 months are focused
on incubation and growth. As part of the ACT Tulsa Accelerator, selected founders outline the top technical challenges facing their startup, and are then paired with relevant mentors to help solve those challenges. Participating startups receive focus on technical challenges and how to commercialize and scale their startup, as well as connections to relevant corporations in Tulsa.
The third cohort for the ACT Tulsa Accelerator will kick off in September and run for 6 months. The cohort will consist of 6-8 of the most promising startups around. ACT Tulsa runs two cohorts a year accepting up to 15 startups each year, so if this cohort doesn’t work for you stay tuned for Cohort IV next year.
This program will run for 6 months in Tulsa, OK. It is required for you to be present in Tulsa for the first 3 months of the program, the incubation phase.
This program is open to Black and Latino-led startups. The accelerator program is best suited for pre-revenue to early revenue-generating startups.
Selected companies should have a founder and appropriate team members that are available to join all program elements of the ACT Tulsa cohort and are located in or can relocate to Tulsa, OK for the first 3 months of the program.
