access programming.

MVP Lab is Access Mode’s unique Accelerator model that prepares BIPOC tech founders for venture ready capital by helping to evolve their minimum viable product and gain paid traction.

What sets us apart from other accelerators?

Advancing equity is our priority.  All our staff, mentors, and presenters go through diversity, equity, and inclusion training.

Each founder is matched with a mentor who provides the personalized, customized guidance needed to take your company from prototype to venture-ready in six months or less.

Access Mode was created by black founders and is led by a board of founders of color who are focused on making an impact and removing barriers.

We are backed by the support of strong partners, including the City and County of Denver, Techstars Foundation, and Amazon Web Services.

As a participant in our program, each company receives:

A $20,000 non-dilutive grant

Mentorship throughout the duration of the program

A customized program schedule that will expose you to subject matter experts and mentors that meet the needs of each individual company

Permanent access to a community of BIPOC founders and leaders

Connection to pre-vetted early stage institutional and angel investors

Up to $10,000 to use with service providers (marketing, developers etc) to finalize MVP and gain customer traction
