Scout Program Manager

Welcome to the Accelerator Affiliate Partner Program!

We have two affiliate partner programs divided between internal and external partners to help us source startups into our accelerator program. 

Our Venture Scouts are our external partners (investors, mentors, firms, influencers, etc) that help us source startups and our Startup Ambassadors are our internal startup CEO’s that refer their own networks to apply to the accelerator.

Venture Scouts are an important part of our accelerator network as they are our eyes and ears out in the world and often also mentor and invest into our companies. 

Scouts typically already operate in the startup world and deal-sourcing so referring great startups from their networks into our accelerator programs is a natural fit.

Examples:
Scouts typically refer startups to us through their partner or co-investor pages on their site (passive referrals) as well as send us startups that are too “early” or need a “boost” in traction before they will commit (active referrals).

Scouts receive the following incentives:

  • Tier 1 – Submit Qualified Application  📩
    $50 in cash per startup that applies, qualifies, and receives an interview.
  • Tier 2 – Startup Joins & Launches in Cohort 🚀
    $150 in cash per startup that receives admission and joins the program.
  • Tier 4 – Become An Official Venture Scout 🦄 
    Once you’ve generated at least 10 qualified applications in a single quarter, you are eligible to add “Venture Scout” to your LinkedIn + receive cash and equity bonuses.

Startup Ambassadors are our best recruiters for quality founding teams into our accelerator admissions process – you’ve been in the program and seen the benefits so you can give a testimonial to that fact, not to mention the referral fee is a great side hustle when you’re putting all of your capital into your startup in the early years.

Examples
Ambassadors typically refer startups to us through their sites and social media (passive referrals) as well as intro founders they meet at networking events and in their own networks (active referrals).

Startup Ambassadors receive the following incentives:

  • Tier 1 – Submit Qualified Application  📩
    $100 in program credit OR $50 in cash per startup application that applies, qualifies, and receives an interview.
  • Tier 2 – Startup Joins & Launches in Cohort 🚀
    $250 in program credit + 1MO Connect ($499) OR $150 in cash + 1MO Connect ($499) on Connect per startup that joins.
  • Tier 3 – Bonus Free Connect Credit  🙌🏻
    For every 10 companies that apply, you’ll receive another free month of credit on our Connect Platform ($499 value).
  • Tier 4 – Become An Official Venture Scout 🦄
    Once you’ve generated at least 10 qualified applications in a single quarter, you are eligible to add “Venture Scout” to your LinkedIn + receive cash and equity bonuses.
