From day one, we match our portfolio companies with potential mentors, board members, enterprise customers and investors.
On demand legal, marketing and technical resources guide you through the process of building and launching a viable product or service.
We only take equity from project based financing.
Through our program our members receive core training in short digestible 10-15 minute videos. Each training session comes with resource guides and templates that have real life data examples. All sessions come with on-demand coaching.

We only take equity from project based financing. All profits from Colliders are reinvested into tools for this virtual community and into an investment fund for selected portfolio companies
Packages of work you can purchase at a discount for that extra help.
This will expedite a step you may not have expertise in.
WHAT’S THE INVESTMENT FOR THE PROGRAM?
Contact us to understand the tuition fees for Colliders. Our corporate sponsors subsidize the price for you but in return we expect you to spend at least 10 hours per week working on your idea.
The minute you enroll coaches will be available to you through an office hours program to give you feedback on your business ideas, review your homework, troubleshoot any issues and motivate you to follow through.
The online program has limited numbers so please email [email protected] or sign up on our waiting list at the bottom of this site if you are interested.
We are also excited to select two portfolio companies that will be used as example companies. You can follow them every step of the way through the program. These companies will receive the additional benefit of the corporate matching, project based investment and are guaranteed monthly press coverage throughout the program.
Colliders provided two mentors in the form of successful women in the tech and children’s toy industry; we gained so much knowledge that, while we had to pivot from our original idea, we discovered far more about our potential customers and what they will pay for.
