Fledge is a global network of conscious company accelerators and seed funds that help entrepreneurs create impactful companies and co-ops at scale through short, intense programs filled with education, guidance, and a massive amount of mentorship.
Fledge operates programs in many cities around the world, each running a variation of our intense, two month, accelerator program, which includes the following components:
Based on The Next Step, an MBA-level entrepreneurship class designed to fill in any gaps in the key knowledge and skills entrepreneurs need to succeed: strategy, financials, marketing, sales, funding, etc.
Participants have dozens of 1-on-1 meetings with experts in a variety of topics, sourced from our global network of hundreds of mentors, who share their experiences, advice, and connections.
We invest $15,000–$20,000 (varies by city) into each company invited to participate, using a unique revenue-based structure that aligns our interests with the founders and keeps us engaged for years.
