Forward Accelerator is a startup accelerator and fund founded by 8-time Founder and CEO, Jack Porter, and venture capital and social media expert, Leslie Errington. The executive team is made up of serial entrepreneurs with a history of over 20 successful tech companies and a billion dollars’ in fundraising.
Founders typially move through our program in this sequence:
- Founders’ Secrets Seminar
- Founders’ Boot Camp
We provide founders with consistent, one-on-one mentoring, walking them through each critical stage in the startup lifecycle, from idea inception to closing of the Angel Investment round. The accelerator program culminates in a demo day called Angels' Forum, where each startup gets 30 minutes to pitch to top Silicon Valley Angel investors.

Why Forward Accelerator?
You might be thinking, there are a lot of startup accelerators out there, so why should I apply to Forward Accelerator?
Well, for starters, you don’t have to apply to get access to our events, documents, and office hours. Secondly, we take a different approach than most accelerators. We believe you need to aim for a $1M Angel round, not $100K. We’ve nailed a process that sets you up to hit the milestones you need for success.
In contrast to most accelerators, we invest in small batches (3-5 companies at a time), and give you 30-minutes to pitch to our angel investors, as opposed to the standard 3-minute pitches that set you up to completely botch your pitch.
With Forward Accelerator, you get a shot at investment, mentorship, and access to a wide network of super angel investors.
