Having built startups in big cities, we know how much time you can waste going to events, trying to find quality mentors, and the endless fundraising journey. With confidence, we can say that the signal far outweighs the noise here in our tiny box canyon, which is why we moved here ourselves.  TVA is run by entrepreneurs who have worked with hundreds of companies around the world, and we know how to help you find the resources you need to give you the best shot at success. 

Hybrid Model

One size doesn't fit all which is why we have moved to a hybrid on-site/remote model. With six weeks on-site and 11 remote, we've combined the best of what accelerators can offer. Startups are of course welcome to be on-site longer, but after being a part of dozens of accelerator programs and working with founders from around the globe here in Telluride, we know that uprooting your life for four months doesn't always make sense, especially for founders that might have families and/or have established businesses several team members. 

Flexible Capital

Not every company needs to be a unicorn to be successful and adopt the "growth at all costs" mentality. We offer two different investment models to support companies with more modest goals as well as those with high growth ambitions. 

Mentorship

Our world class network of over 100 mentors is comprised of successful entrepreneurs and investors who have literally built some of the world's biggest companies as well as well as entrepreneurs who are actively in the startup trenches. The value of having both in our network ensures you can get unprecedented insight and access to some amazing networks, but it also ensures you get hands-on, practical advice. 

TVA is optimized to help startup ventures ready for growth. Generally, startups must have at least two full-time team members and established initial traction in the form of revenue or customers. If you're interested, we're happy to hop on a phone call. Just let us know!
