ELEVATE: The Growth Accelerator – Application Deadline

May 26

Behind every fast-growing startup is the ability to successfully attract, engage, and delight customers.

To do so, high-growth companies must focus on adding value to customers at every stage of their journey. Inbound marketing, sales, and service are well known methodologies for achieving customer value.

General Catalyst and HubSpot are excited to announce ELEVATE, a free virtual accelerator consisting of eight 1-hour sessions designed to help early-stage startups learn the principles of inbound marketing and create a growth playbook tailored to the needs of their customers. Startups will be invited to attend an exclusive, four week program where they will join Master Classes led by HubSpot experts to learn inbound methodology fundamentals, and case studies led by General Catalyst portfolio founders and executives to better conceptualize how to apply these principles. In the fourth week, startups will complete a Master Class and case study focused specifically on fundraising led by General Catalyst investors and portfolio founders.

The summer will culminate with a final pitch event where each team will submit a short video to explain their vision and demonstrate their progress. Five startups will be selected and awarded with free tickets to HubSpot’s INBOUND 2019 event where they will have the opportunity to pitch their company to a live audience at the Rockland Trust Bank Pavilion in Boston, Massachusetts.
