Weekly Accelerator Updates

Week 1: Welcome!

Welcome to the 2022 Tufts Venture Accelerator!

This summer, we are continuing the tradition of running two editions simultaneously:

  • The Full-Time Edition (in-person at the Joyce Cummings Center with coworking space, dedicated coaching, mentor matching and more)
  • The Part-Time Edition (remote only; access to most workshops as well as bookable office hours meetings)

Both Full-Time and Part-Time Editions will be receiving regular emails with important information and pro-tips. Any social events in the Boston area are also open to all FT and PT cohort members who are in the area.


Important information

Please make sure you bookmark the TVA22 Landing Page. In addition, please complete the following tasks before our kickoff session on Tuesday, June 14 at 9:30 AM ET:


3-month overview

In each of the next three months, you will be focusing on a different aspect of building your venture.

  • In June, you will be focusing on understanding your market and customer
  • In July, you will be building a solution and developing a go-to-market strategy
  • In August, you will figure out how to make money, build a team and everything else that goes into building a standalone venture

You will put everything together and prepare a venture pitch by the end of the program. We will also guide you through the process of developing a baseline marketing presence and creating your brand

Join the 3-day Bootcamp

And so, keep calm and follow the process, starting with a hybrid 3-day bootcamp to kick off the summer. We will be using your own ventures as case studies to apply the principles we will review.

Let’s do this!
