Our goal at DreamIt is simple: Help great people with great ideas build great companies.
The DreamIt founders designed DreamIt to be the startup accelerator program they wish existed when they started and sold their first companies. New startups today need only a little funding, but they need more help and support than ever before. They need a community of fellow entrepreneurs to share ideas and inspiration, technologists to join their team, Mentors and coaches who have struggled on their way to a big success, legal and accounting services that don’t cost precious cash, and opportunities to meet and pitch angel investors and venture capitalists.
So how does DreamIt work? It all starts with bright, energetic people with great ideas. People like you. Then DreamIt adds all the help and support you need to build the next great company.
Specifically, we give you:
Up to $25,000 of seed funding per company. ($5,000 plus $5,000 for each founding team member (up to four) who will be onsite for the program).
1-on-1 Mentorship with leading entrepreneurs who have “been there and done that” plus donated legal, accounting & administrative help
introductions to VCs and angel investors and an opportunity to pitch to dozens of them at Demo Day
A weekly Speaker Series and regular check-ins with your Mentors and the DreamIt Managing Partners
Peers that will become lifelong friends & a collaborative work space
We’ll push you again and again to be your best!
