Accelerator

We’re turning our back on the traditional accelerator model

Beyond Beta is the next-generation accelerator for ambitious startups built from the experience of working with over a 1.000 Danish startups. With our modular platform-based accelerator, we’re able to match our offerings with your startup’s individual needs.

Our purpose is to gear up your startup for rapid scaling and enable you to raise private funding with help from top industry veterans, investment experts, as well as our seasoned founders. By joining, you’ll go through a rigorous process of simultaneous learning, networking and executing on your business.

We help you:

  • Gear up your business for rapid scaling
  • Become investment-ready
  • Find relevant investors, corporates and experts

But there’s a catch. Beyond Beta is divided into three phases with cut-offs every six weeks. We will select only the best startups to move on to the next phase of the accelerator and unlock more opportunities. Although we take no equity, you need to demonstrate commitment, and an ability to learn and execute.

We close for applications every 6 months. Check out the deadlines for the next cohort under News.

Camps,
workshops &
masterclasses

We empower you with the knowledge and tools to scale your business effectively.

Our 3-day camps combine masterclasses with in-depth workshops, so you can apply your learnings to your business right away. You will then spend several weeks turning what you developed during our camps into reality.

We follow up with an evaluation day, to share your progress and gather peer feedback. These events are an amazing opportunity to engage with your fellow entrepreneurs and you’ll learn just as much from them as you will from our veteran experts.

Mentoring

Every startup journey is different. Every founder needs a different kind of support.

Get access to personal coaches, who will follow your progress through the entire program. Teams keep highlighting this as a key value-creator of the program. It is a unique chance to spar with someone, who does not have an economic interest in your business and only wants the best for you.

Network

Joining our accelerator gives you access to an amazing community of industry experts, serial entrepreneurs, investors, and lawyers, who engage in a pay-forward culture. We’ve developed this network through working with over a 1.000 startups to date.

Extra Resources

Founding a startup is about accumulating resources. We give you a head-start with a comprehensive resource platform consisting of helpful tools, access to crucial software and IT (AWS, Google Cloud, Contractbook, HubSpot), but also the opportunity to borrow our pre-selected interns or a growth-hacking CEO in residence.

Acceleration Phases

The accelertor is divided up in 3 gated phases. That means, after each phase, we will select only the best performing teams to move to the next phase. The acceleration phases, though, are more than just a sequence of stages that you go through. Each phase consists of one learning loop of Preparing –> Internalizing –> Executing –> Evaluating.

Launch your growth journey now by joining our online platform get started today.

The online platform is designed in way that it can stand alone and provide value in itself. Yet, it will also give you a headstart into the program and help you significantly in crafting a winning application for our core accelerator. Once you start the accelerator program, we will require you to have gone through the online material beforehand.

We are always open for applications, so do not hesitate to send yours as soon as you feel ready. We close for applications every 6 months. Find the next deadlines under News.

Phase 01

Phase 1 builds directly on the foundation of the modules from the launchpad and starts off with a 3-day Boot Camp, where we will work intensively on:

  • How you obtain product-market-fit
  • How to enhance your value proposition
  • How to go to market in a selected beachhead market.
  • How to apply design methods on building your business

By front-loading the modules online, we can focus entirely on working with you and your team during all 3 days of the Boot Camp.

You will meet the different mentors affiliated with our accelerator and together find the best match for which mentor will accompany you throughout the rest of your journey with us. We will discuss your and our expectations for the program and set individual development goals for the following months.

During the following 4 weeks, you will test your assumptions formulated during the Boot Camp and execute on the topics set for this period.

Based on your individual development during these first weeks, we will decide whether you move on to phase 2.

Phase 02

Phase 2 kicks off with a 3-day Training Camp where we focus on gearing up your business for scale. This means we will sit down with you and start sketching organisational structures that put your organisation in a position for sustainable growth.

Following the Training Camp, you will again work extensively on the course you set during the camp for 4 weeks.

From Phase 2 onwards, you will have access to our resource platform with helpful tools, interns 4 hire, CEOs in residence, and much more.

After this phase follows the hardest cut during our program, where only half of the remaining teams will proceed to the third and final phase.

Phase 03

Phase 3 is entirely customised to your personal journey and needs. We will focus on introducing you to relevant investors and make sure you are set up for successful funding negotiations.

Throughout phase 2 and 3, we will host a series of virtual and on-site deep dives to specific topics like using metrics and KPIs.

You will continue to have access to our resource platform with helpful tools, interns 4 hire, CEOs in residence, and much more.

Demo Day marks the end of the program, where the whole cohort will get back together and celebrate the achievements of the last 5 months. The founders remaining from phase 3 will get to pitch on stage.
