How to solve the “Death Valley of Accelerators”?
Traditional corporate accelerators have a bad reputation and it seems deserved. Based on recent analysis most of the corporate accelerators do not produce results for participating startups as well as do not produce material impact for corporates.
In parallel, new models are emerging (hybrid accelerators, venture builders, startup studios). Last month we analyzed the TrenLab Accelerator born in partnership between Spain’s state-run railway company Renfe and a telco (Telefónica). In this Mind the Chat we go through the Kamet model. Kamet is a venture builder launched early2016 by AXA with an initial investment of €100M.
We will analyze what’s special about Kamet in depth with Ravit Warsha, Partner, Healthcare for Kamet in Israel.
