Desai Accelerator is a professional business accelerator open to early-stage, tech-enabled startups. Our goal is to help drive companies to reach the first $1 Million in annual revenue, an inflection point on the trajectory to long-term success. We offer unparalleled reach from the heart of the Midwest. Our programming unites entrepreneurs who want to tap into vast networks and resources, including those in the Ann Arbor and Detroit entrepreneurial communities, and the world-class University of Michigan ecosystem that extends coast-to-coast and around the globe.
While participating in our 16-week program, startups receive funding (up to $50K), tailored mentorship, hands-on training, national visibility, and many key resources to help them achieve rapid growth – including free access to a 10-intern talent pool. The program culminates in Demo Day, where each company pitches to a theater of investors.
