- Dreamit On Demand: Startups: a race against time. Dreamit On Demand enables startups to launch their next growth phase when the timing is right for them, beginning any month. With investors asking “What’s your traction, burn rate, and how much runway do you have?” startups can’t wait six+ months to start a process that will help them rapidly grow, refine their model, gain customer exposure, and get in front of qualified investors. Unlike rigid cohort-based programs that only accept new startups once or twice per year, Dreamit startups begin attaining customer, investor, and model refinement benefits immediately giving them more of what they need most: time. We focus on driving customer acquisition and access to capital. Dreamit makes offers to startups on a rolling basis and onboards only one new startup in each vertical every month.
- Customer SprintS: You do dev sprints. Now you’ll do Customer Sprints® — two-week, customer-focused sprints where Dreamit startups build their customer pipeline and partnerships, get feedback, and enhance their industry networks. During Customer Sprints, startups typically pitch a total of 15-25 executive-level decision-makers of leading firms accelerating relationships by months. Two-week Customer Sprints occur four times per year and each startup goes on two sets of Customer Sprints.
- Investor SprintS: During Investor Sprints®, founders have curated, one-on-one meetings with top US venture capital firms. Typically each founder meets a total of 20-30 investors. The process is extremely efficient and accelerates the fundraising process enabling startups to gain rapid market feedback on what it will take to close their next round. Leading up to the Investor Sprint, founders go through an intense prep process including Mock VC Meetings to maximize the probability of successfully raising a round. Two-week Investor Sprints occur three times per year enabling startups to choose the Investor Sprint timing that works best for them.
