Getting selected in the Collide Village Accelerator Program is not easy. But once selected, this is where the hard works begins. You will be kept busy in a flipped classroom model where you will be assigned books and articles to read, watch videos, conduct lots of face-to-face weekly customer interviews, run experiments to validate your hypothesis, mentor sessions, conduct weekly empirical debates with the teams on a specific topic, present your findings on the topics you were assigned to work on weekly basis, pitch practice and other so called important areas to have a business model that is scalable and repeatable.
