Global 2012

Colorado, USA

This was the 3rd year of our program and a year that we really figured things out. For the first time we had confidence to run our annual Investor Days event in Colorado (instead of taking our ventures to San Francisco) and we were excited with the turnout and funding results. It was at this time that we believed without a doubt that this acceleration model really was working for ventures. With this excitement came the realization came that we were the limiting factor in spreading this around the world and creating more impact in that we could only support a limited number of ventures each year. This realization set the stage for our location-based expansion that would be seen in the years to come.
