Ahead is Startup Farm’s new Acceleration Program. A new way, like the name says, putting your company ahead.
There are 3 modules
"Full-life" immersion so you work focused on building your business model, supported by Startup Farm and our wide network of mentors, partners and investors.
Get Sales DoneREMOTE
The main goal here is to sell, sell and sell a little more through our directed contents and weekly analysis of your sale strategies. Also, some other contents are seen in more depth, such as metrics and OKRs.
"How much capital do I need in the long run? Where and how should I raise money?" These and other questions are answered in this phase, which will bring fortnightly contents and checkpoints. In this module, your startup will continue to work on the development of the product or service, aiming always at improving your metrics and performance.
Throughout the three modules, there will be several contents, keynotes and talks with influencers so we can make your startup go even further. There will be subjects such as: high potential team formation, mission and purpose, how to have a global view, finance, marketing, advisors and board, VC, legal matters, HR, sales, value proposition validation. Everything to make your startup go ahead.
The ahead³ is meant for startups of any sector. The entrepreneurs will have access to large companies and market specialists. The projects will be accelerated in Startup Farm's headquarters at Campus São Paulo, a Google Space. See alongside what the president of Visa, Ryan McInerney has to say to you .

Valuation R$ 3,75m
