Graham & Walker Announces 4th Accelerator Cohort

We are thrilled to announce the companies selected for Graham & Walker’s Accelerator Cohort 4 starting this week! Six companies were selected to participate in our high-impact, highly personalized fundraising program, through which they’ll meet with hundreds of mentors and investors over the next six weeks. Companies admitted into the program will also receive a $50,000 investment from the Graham & Walker Venture Fund.

“We are focused on helping founders master storytelling, build confidence, and develop the right relationships. Because fundraising doesn’t actually happen from a polished onstage performance – it happens behind the scenes, one email, call, meeting and pitch at a time” said Leslie Feinzaig, Founder & Managing Director of Graham & Walker.

This year, the traditional “Ready Set Raise” program was split into two: an educational bootcamp, and a personalized fundraising and coaching program. “It is our goal to make the best-in-class curriculum we have developed over the last three years of this program be accessible to a larger portion of our community, while keeping the accelerator intimate and impactful. We piloted our idea with 20 companies, which were selected from hundreds of applicants, over 3 weeks last December to great success.” added Feinzaig. The current accelerator cohort companies were handpicked from this class. 

Over the next 6 weeks, these founders will focus on strengthening their team, refining their fundraising strategy and getting pitch ready with the support of our specially selected mentors, high value partners and the G&W leadership team. 

“Supporting great companies through acceleration, investment, and opportunity is at the core of Graham & Walker’s mission. In order to effect change in the public markets within the next twenty years, we need great companies to start & get funded today. That work begins for these amazing founders now!” Said Rohre Titcomb, COO, Graham & Walker. 

Congratulations to our Cohort 4 companies:

Join us for Demo Night and Closing party on March 3rd 2022 to celebrate these Rockstar founders and their amazing companies.
