The Arsenal is a business accelerator for new ventures and companies that want to grow fast and validate their assumptions. We especially love helping technology-enabled companies founded by veterans, military families, women, and minorities. Our primary industries of focus are healthcare, environment, infrastructure/logistics, and education startups. It provides a 3-month, high-intensity business mentorship and growth curriculum for early stage companies solving problems in education, infrastructure, environment, and healthcare.
The organization hopes to build a supportive environment with structured programming and mentorship. In contrast to an incubator or other small business development services, The Arsenal's accelerator is limited in duration - there is a start date and an end date. It is a 90-day intensive curriculum is based on proven lean startup methodologies. The program matches founders with mentors through an international network of high-caliber individuals who are committed to helping startups succeed.
Its focus is on market validation and support to grow not only new ventures, but also to launch future business leaders for Hampton Roads and beyond. Applications are open until Jan 23rd, 2017. More information is available at: https://arsenalinfosessionvb.eventbrite.com/?aff=hn
