Learn

The Emergence curriculum is designed to teach you the foundational skills that you need to launch, grow, and sustain your business venture.

No Cookie Cutter Content

It's amazing how other accelerators can see into the future & design a curriculum before they even know who the participants are.

At Emergence, we believe that the best way to teach entrepreneurship is to tailor the content to the specific founders and their ventures.

Take a peek below for the areas we will cover, tailored to meet the needs of each individual cohort.

How Do We Do It?

Instead of specifying a stage/sector/business type before opening applications, we take a look at all submissions and then identify businesses with key similarities.

We look for founders with distinct but complementary personalities, working on ventures of similar types at the same stage of development (no competing ventures, of course.) 

Not only does this increase the chances of the cohort getting along, but it also allows us to design a curriculum that's actually applicable to what you are building.
