The Telluride Venture Accelerator is the first accelerator focused on outdoor recreation, tourism, natural products, health, energy, water, and education.
We accept three businesses each year and become a partner in your success.
We invest $30,000 (plus up to an additional $8000 for transportation and lodging), surround you with world-class mentoring, and assist with getting follow-on investment.
The Telluride community includes dozens of successful, experienced entrepreneurs eager to lend their expertise as your mentor. The Telluride Venture Accelerator also offers an entrepreneur-in-residence program that brings in high profile entrepreneurs for dedicated mentoring. Specific experts will also be invited as part of our custom mentoring program for participating businesses.
