Batch #8 of ABC Accelerator's acceleration program has kicked off! Carco team has joined 7 other startups in a 3 month long intense acceleration program. Our mission? To nail and scale our idea.
The ABC Program is an award-winning acceleration program for startups and scaleups, who want to grow their business. Based in BTC Ljubljana (Slovenia), it offers teams all the necessary infrastructure and support to focus on their work.
The program is insane in a truly positive way: a mix of 1:1 sessions with entrepreneurs, lectures, interactive workshops, and general work time ensures that there's no time to slack off.
The first week was dedicated to getting all the teams set up. We got to get to know each other and to familiarize ourselves with the program. For one, it's going to take some getting used to a new workspace layout. We listened to a BTC presentation, went to a Slovenian lunch, went on a tour of BTC, mingled over pizza, and then worked till it got dark. There's also an amazing video in existence about the official ABC Batch #8 Kickoff.
Although the start was light and social, the program soon got intense. We had workshops about business model validation, validating market assumptions, what the market needs and wants, market fit, what investors want, and pitch workshop.
We learned lots of new things and got our share of "homework", which we're working hard to complete. It feels like a bootcamp that's throwing challenges one after another at us. But you know what they say - no pain, no gain, and we think it's totally worth it.
We gained lots of knowledge that we're putting to good use. How, you may ask? Well, let's just say that the Carco app got some pivotal changes, and you'll see them soon.
