In the Accelerator’s ecosystem, companies are referred to as “Elements”. Think in terms of the cohesive elements of a formula for success.
Every entrepreneur comes to the Accelerator possessing keen desire, a dream, variable experience and some form of expertise. However, to create a successful organization, the emerging management team needs to possess skills in many areas, including administration, human resources, technology, marketing, and sales. Very few people coming out of corporate America actually posses these multifaceted skill-sets. brian cork has the unique ability to draw out inherent skills and abilities from emerging leaders and forge them into a comprehensive strategy for success.
A typical scenario includes guiding start-up leadership through corporate formation (Corp, S-Corp, LLC, etc), vision development, capital formation (raising money), product development, human capital development (hiring best-of-class people), beta-testing, and new customer development. For example, warm introductions to relevant companies that will enable Accelerator Elements to gain market traction quickly. As far as we know most companies need people, money and new customers. And, brian cork can help you realize all three.
Specific functionality must be in place within an Element to ensure potential investors that their involvement is not only with a company that has a good product or service, but an organization that has quality leadership and a structure that will facilitate the growth of the company as it Accelerates through the program. While brian cork himself is there to see that the Element succeeds, he also feels a great accountability to employees and shareholders. This directly aligns the best interests of the founder, investors and the business community as a whole under “best practices.” This is a vital maxim in the brian cork ecosystem.
