Watson Institute Accelerator

We are now accepting applications for the Watson Institute Accelerator beginning in July 2022. Applications are being accepted on a rolling basis. The final deadline to submit your application is June 1st, 2022.

International applicants, considering the 3-week in-person intensive experience, are strongly encouraged to apply early.

This is A Fully Funded Fellowship


25 impact-driven entrepreneurs will be selected to join the Watson Institute Accelerator as fully-funded fellows valued at $17,500.

The courses and program will kick off with a 3-week immersive in-person experience in Boulder, Colorado. The remaining virtual 15-weeks are designed to complement fellows’ existing venture work, allowing them to implement learnings from the program in real-time. This program is ideal for busy entrepreneurs with a time commitment of between 5-8 hours per week.
