What is the difference between membership and being an alumnus of ActivateNM accelerator?
If you have gone through our 8 – 10 week accelerator program, you are considered alumni of the accelerator and are considered part of the community (community membership). The reason why you would sign up to be a professional member is to work with coaches and staff on your startup goals and have additional access to membership features. See the “What’s Included” section to get an idea of what is offered with the paid(professional) membership.
Why would I sign up to be a professional member?
The funds go toward keeping the community alive. You get additional startup coaching and facilitated mentor and resource introductions that can be helpful for startups looking for guidance and accountability. There are also other perks such as product discounts, and marketing support.
Are there any prerequisites to joining?
You need to have a startup, growth goals, and be willing to pivot as you learn from peers and mentors. Membership is about being an active participant meaning we are looking to see your venture grow and participate in activities regularly. Not designed for passive membership.
