Overview

MuckerLab is not a typical accelerator program. They work with only 10-20 companies per year in annual cohorts. No three-month bootcamps. No demo days. Just heads-down business building for one year, or however long it takes to reach the next set of critical business milestones.

Instead, they work with ten to twelve companies per year, doing whatever is necessary, for as long as necessary, to ensure that each and every company achieves the operating milestones required for the next round of financing.

MuckerLab Invests at the earliest stage of a company's lifecycle -- "pre-seed", as the first institutional capital -- and helps entrepreneurs validate and iterate on the original hypotheses of their core business concepts. In short, they help companies achieve product-market fit in preparation to raise institutional venture financing. They help existing businesses revamp their strategies, increase their addressable market opportunities, and operationally focus on accelerating revenue growth to become a high-growth, venture-fundable businesses.

Since their value add is primarily operational and not merely financial, the more important question for entrepreneurs to answer is whether they believe MuckerLab can help accelerate the growth of their businesses, operating metrics, and fundraising, thus making the company significantly more valuable after the program.

Applicants willing to get in touch with Mucker Capital can do it by filling in this form.
