Start@Shea's Accelerator, Accelerate@Shea, is a 9-week program that provides student startups with expert advice, space, and funding to launch and grow their business. Teams will have access to a network of founders and mentors including alumni and friends of Boston College through round-robin workshops and one-on-one office hour sessions. Accelerate@Shea aims to bring together the innovative startup community at Boston College by giving teams the opportunity to discuss their progress and build a relationship with other student entrepreneurs going through the same challenges.
Each year Accelerate@Shea concludes with a Demo Day, a celebration of all the students hard work over the 9-week program. All student startups pitch their services/products and in 2020, Demo Day was broadcasted live for the first time worldwide gaining 1.6k live viewers.
