FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why are you different to other accelerators?

There is no other accelerator who interacts with companies the way we do. We are as much an aggressive growth and brand studio as an accelerator.  Although our accelerator program initially lasts 8 weeks, we work with our startups for the life of their companies. Whether it be introductions to customers, business strategy, or follow on investment, we consider ourselves an active partner in every company we invest in. Our mindset is set by our founder in his TEDx talk.

How/When will I be able to contact Investors?

Every week Expert Dojo will reach out to investors for you. Our objective is to match you up with the most suitable investors in our database to arrange meetings. We base this on your industry and investment round. We can’t promise that investors will be interested in meeting, but will provide you with the feedback necessary to increase your chances.

How can I register as an Investor?

You can register as an Investor using this simple application. Once you’ve been approved you will have full access to the best deal flow in America.

What types of companies do you train and invest in?

We invest in pre-seed and seed companies ready to scale quickly. Most of our startups are minority and female founded technology companies. However, we remain industry agnostic and invest in founders from all over the world and from diverse backgrounds. As of today, we have invested in Product/Hardware, FinTech, MedTech, EduTech, SAS, B2C, B2C, Apps, Games, VR, e-Commerce and more.

What do you provide in your accelerator program?

We invest $100,000 in each of our startups and help them get traction as well as go to market faster than they could ever do by themselves. Our startups also participate in our 8-week program that trains them in all aspects of business and introduces them to investors and mentors. 

How much equity do you take for the $100k you invest and when does the next program start?

We invest $100k or $50k in each company accepted into the program. The typical equity stake for this is 7% but we have different options that can go as low as 3.5%. Program dates are found here.

How can your program help my startup?

We help our startups get traction, secure follow on investment and scale faster than they could ever do by themselves.

Does it imply that we need to enter the US market as part of the program?

No. Our program is virtual and we help our startup get investment from US and Non-US VCs as well as grow either in their market or enter the US market. 

Do all of the startups participating in the program get investment?

 Yes. All the startups participating in our program get an investment.

Do startups get the check at the beginning or at the end of the program?

All the startups in our program have received investment before the program starts. 

What niches are your investors interested in?

Expert DOJO as a fund is industry agnostic and invests in all sectors. However, some partners within the fund prefer certain industries.

What are the requirements to enter the program?

We accept companies into the program after speaking with them and conducting due diligence on them. We typically invest in startups that have a product, go to market strategy, and potential for high growth. 

Do you do Seed investments?

Yes, we do seed and pre-seed investments.

Does your venture arm invest only as part of the accelerator or also beyond it?

After our initial investment of $100k or $50k, we are able to invest additional million dollars of follow on investment on top of the initial investment. 

How long does our program last?

The program is 8 weeks of intense growth and acceleration and then goes into an additional 1-2 years of continuing support with strategy, investment and enterprise introductions.
