Zxlerator Summer Internship
- Zxlerator ( https://zx-ventures.com/journal-entries/2017/7/27/what-is-the-zxlerator-program ) is an 11-week startup accelerator run by the Explore team within ZX Ventures.
- It’s a vehicle to validate and optimize desirability, viability & feasibility (DVF) for new and existing ventures.
- Zxlerator kicks off with Bootcamp: 2 weeks of intensive, hands-on training of the ZX Operating System, covering concepts like design thinking and lean startup methodology.
- Teams are paired with internal and external experts for coaching, mentorship, and guidance.
- For the next 9 weeks, teams of existing employees and summer interns work together to identify a real problem, validate a solution, and build a viable business model.
- The program culminates in Demo Day, when the teams have the opportunity to pitch their ventures to senior leaders and ABI shareholders, and the ventures that are selected for funding by internal investors become real businesses.
