World Accelerator Application
Interested in applying? Sign up below. Full application details will be sent to the teams we are considering for the World Accelerator program. All teams will also be added to our mailing list. We will alert you when new brands are added and include you on helpful business tips we send out in our newsletter.
The World Accelerator program offers a significant and unique opportunity. We are seeking energetic and creative entrepreneurs interested in developing ‘brands’ into a successful business. Candidates will be selected based on the following criteria:
A great idea: A great domain ‘property’ needs a concept worthy of its potential. What is the big picture concept you will utilize with this premium ‘property’? Have you implemented any aspects of your idea already and are seeing traction?
A solid team: As important as your idea is, your ability to implement it will require you to bring a talented, high energy and creative team to the table. Having core technology development capabilities in-house is strongly preferred. Teams need to be agile and ready for lean rapid deployment.
Workable, executable strategy: Have you sat down and worked out the specific steps needed to bring this idea to fruition? A well planned and workable business plan is essential to success.
Revenue/monetization: How will your concept translate into business success? A feasible plan to generate revenue will be essential to leverage participation in the World Accelerator program.
Teams can be from anywhere in the World, but must be English speaking. Teams must be fully dedicated to their business, and have a clear plan to develop the brand. Teams that submit a business idea understand that ideas submitted are not confidential and may be published by World Accelerator for visitors to vote on and comment. Multiple people may have the same idea and ideas may be thought of or implemented by someone else. World Accelerator is looking for ideas and the best teams to implement them. While we are requesting your ideas and why you are the right team to implement them, we request that information that you deem as proprietary should not be submitted.
World Accelerator’s objective is to select the top 20 applicants for the program, however World may select more or less depending on the quality of initial submissions. For applicants selected, World will provide details on the use of the brand, World Accelerator’s capital commitment, and the mentor team and background assigned to each company based on the specific project’s needs. Applicants will then have a period of time to ask further questions and choose to accept or not their continuation in the application process. All final applicants will be required to participate in a 30 minute live or video Q& A session. A subset of applicants will receive final acceptance into the program.
