The Accelerator is like having the RIGHT cofounder at the RIGHT time.

We'll be with you every step of the way. You'll be hopping on the phone with our team each week based on what part of the 7 step system you're in.

Need help choosing the best validation method for your idea?
Aren't sure how to respond to an investor?
Want advice on how to set up your first Facebook ad during your Launch phase?

Done. Done. Done.

The best member of our team to help you will be there for you, whether you need help from one of our designers, developers, or growth hackers.
Building a startup is lonely.

That's why we built a community of entrepreneurs who are going through the Program with you. All of our students are on the same journey as you, and will help you along the way.

In this private Slack community, you'll be able to get the help you need, and build relationships with founders like you who are working hard to succeed.
During the Accelerator you'll find there's times when you might need designers to build your Prototype, developers to build your Proof of Concept, or growth hackers to help you through the Launch phase.

We're here for you.

ONLY our Accelerator startups get access to our in-house team of designers, developers, and growth hackers at Launchpeer located right in our office.

These are the SAME people who are going to be coaching you through each phase of the system.

Although hiring our designers, developers, and/or growth hackers is an added cost on top of the program, there's two big benefits...
You'll already know them on a first name basis...
Instead of going out and hunting for designers, developers, or growth hackers who you don't know, you'll have the chance to work with the same team members who are already guiding you through your startup journey.
They already KNOW this system inside and out
Our team will already have a clear vision of what your goals are and what you're trying to accomplish at each step of this system. That means instead of having to educate whoever you hire to do the work on what you need, our team will already know what you need to get to the next phase of your journey.
We offer flexible terms and fixed pricing
We ONLY work with startups at Launchpeer which means we have to offer flexible payment terms and fixed pricing with no surprises. So if you hire us to build your Proof of Concept or to build your Prototype you know that our pricing is fair and transparent, not something you'll find other places.
We're fast
One of the most important things for startups is SPEED. You need to keep the momentum going, and nothing kills momentum more than slow work. Our team works at the 'speed of startup' and will work to ensure your success by doing exactly what you need quickly.
To help you fast track your success through the Accelerator our team has created done-for-you templates and scripts. Instead of spending days, weeks, or months agonizing over what to create, how to create it, what copy to write, what design to do, we've done the work for you.

With a little customization you'll be able to quickly move through the Accelerator and to your goal. Some of the templates and scripts include...
Perfect Pitch Deck Template
Instead of going out and hunting for designers, developers, or growth hackers who you don't know, you'll have the chance to work with the same team members who are already guiding you through your startup journey.

And many more...

We're constantly adding to this list as our Accelerator startup's needs change, and you'll have lifetime access to all these changes if you join the program.
Every so often we interview some of the world's top founders and investors, and we do it live so you can ask any questions you want about building, launching, and scaling a successful startup.

You'll have exclusive access to these live sessions and their recordings.

Patrick Gallagher

Mark Jones
Founder of Fytr
"Launchpeer is my knight in shining armor! I had this crazy idea and no clue how to make it happen and in no time they created a Prototype that fits my vision perfectly!"
Tara McKee
Founder of Creative Den
"We got to 3000 users in 30 days on our way to raising over $1M in funding just after launch. There's no way we could have done that without the team at Launchpeer."
David Yeates
Founder of HOBA
"Thanks to the team at Launchpeer we're on track to launch ahead of schedule. They've given our team the confidence and product to be successful right out the gate."
John Lee
Cofounder of PodSquad
"Rebecca has been great. You guys have a true asset in her. She's been really enjoyable to work with, and I highly recommend your team for anyone who is looking to build out their idea!."
Adam Bergman
Founder of Pockett
"You and the team did a great job flushing out the ideas! Thank you for the hard work, I know it is not the easiest industry to wrap your head around."
Richard Tran

Collin Gallagher

Jose Mallabo
Founder of Creer
"I can't stress enough how incredible of a job you guys are doing and I'm very humbled to be working with a group of individuals that are clearly very devoted to helping me reach this dream. Thank you all so much."
David Peterson
Founder of The Cause
"Is the Accelerator in person or can I do it remotely?"
The Accelerator is 100% remote. All the lessons, group calls, and help from our team is done remotely. Of course if you'd ever want to stop by our offices in Charleston, SC we'd love to see you!
"How do I know I'll get the results I want?"
We offer a full 14 day money back guarantee. If for any reason you're not happy just shoot an email to hello@launchpeer.com and we'll give your money back.
"I don't have an idea yet, is that a problem?"
That's good! Let us help you choose the best idea, and make it the best it could possibly be. Over HALF of our customers come to us without really knowing exactly what their idea is or what it could be.
"Why are you doing this? I've never seen anything like it before."
Unselfish reason - we truly believe building a startup should be accessible to EVERYONE. Selfish reason - we want to work with you to build your web or mobile app, and without funding and without following this process, startup founders like you wouldn't be able to (and we wouldn't be here).
"How soon can I get started?"
Once you checkout below you'll be prompted to schedule your Kickoff Call with our team, which is typically within the next 3-5 business days.
"Do you take equity from the startups you work with?"
Nope! We strongly believe startups should keep their equity, and really this is the best move. Equity should be solely used for cofounders and investors, and potentially your earliest employees.
"What's the difference between this and other accelerators/incubators?"
Accelerators and incubators are great if you can get into the top 2-3 like Y Combinator or 500 Startups, but even then typically accelerators are just places to get mentorship. Launchpeer is giving you much more, like hands on training, individualized coaching, access to top designers, developers, and growth hackers, and more.

Lastly, we don't take equity in the startups we work with while most accelerators do. We believe founders should keep their equity, which is one of the reasons we charge for the Accelerator.
"How long is the Accelerator Program? When should I expect to get funded?"
Once you join the Accelerator you're part of the Launchpeer fam. That means we work with you until you reach your pinnacle of success.

In terms of funding, a majority of our Accelerator startups get Pre-Seed funding within 6 months (over 80%), which allows them to build, launch, and scale their Proof of Concept.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We pride ourselves on long term relationships with our customers. We've seen many of our customers go from just an idea when they talked to us to a venture backed, Inc500 startup. We're in it for the long haul with you.
