Why This UK VC Firm Launched an Accelerator in Uzbekistan

Ice Breaker Media :
The accelerator’s venture approach combines incubator and venture studio characteristics specifically designed for emerging markets. In most larger markets, thousands of startups would typically apply to join an incubation program.

We made the Path,

but You need to follow it

  • Onboarding: In the first month of class, we put you on a team of ~50% hackers (coders) and ~50% hustlers (biz dev.) This is so teams are balanced, with the skills to make and sell a product. No startup survives without customers!
  • Class: The class is held once a week, for 90 min. Oftentimes, we will have guest speakers of people from the startup community. Network with them!
  • Coaching: Once a week, you will be assigned to a startup expert to coach you and help you with strategy. They will give you a group task every week, grade your performance, and assist with resources. The time of these experts is valuable – be prepared and do not waste it!
What Do You Get?

Coaching is done once a week online with a startup expert. These experts have real-life experience in startups and are drawn from an international pool of successful startups, investors, and strategy consultants from top international companies. Remember that to our international experts, you may be their first impression of startups from Uzbekistan. Represent Uzbekistan well.
