CALENDAR OF UPCOMING & PREVIOUS EVENTS
January 2020 marked the establishment of New York based exclusive accelerator the Baltic-Armenian-Jacobs (BAJ) Accelerator was made possible by the collaboration and partnership of three organizations: Baltic American Chamber of Commerce, Orion Worldwide Innovations LLC and Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute at Cornell Tech. Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute is established jointly by Cornell University and the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology.
The BAJ Accelerator comes to the market at a critical time when startup investors fear subsidy bubble. As The Wall Street Journal reports Tech startups are facing pressure from investors to come up with new business models that generate profits, rather than offering endless “discounts aimed at luring new customers and racking up users”. VCs, Tech giants and other investors are interested in exponential technologies with business models and Intel’s $2 billion deal last month to buy Israeli startup Habana Labs marks the biggest AI deal in a year that saw transactions hit record highs (WSJ).
BAJ Accelerator will enable startups to focus on what matters to customers and how to build business models to grow their businesses. Connect founders to influential dealmakers and investors. Exposure to Cornell Tech network, Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute startups coaching proven methodology, Baltic and Armenian startup ecosystem.
The Firing Range name of the BAJ Accelerator comes from the cornerstone differentiator of the program: offering multiple tangible engagements with upscale investors from the U.S. and other countries.
BAJ Accelerator will offer two bespoke programs open for founders from the Baltics, Armenia, the U.S. and the rest of the world:
14-Day Seed Program for early stage founders including targeted coaching, real-time customer interviews, training and full day sessions with aggressive portfolio investors.
6-Day Advanced Program for Series Funding with influential networking and three full day presentations to dynamic dealmakers.
