Accelerators can be powerful tools to build and transform businesses in a short period of time, which is why they have spread like wildfire in the corporate world.

Designing the Successful Corporate Accelerator gives readers the tools to design, create, and manage successful corporate accelerators that achieve results time and time again. Authors Jules Miller and Jeremy Kagan are seasoned professionals in this space, and combine global market research, interviews with accelerator leaders, and their own experience launching and running accelerators to share what works--and what doesn't.

The first half of the book takes a broader look at corporate innovation as a whole and how accelerators fit in, then the second half offers practical advice for how to launch, run, and manage world-class accelerator programs. Perfect for executives, employees, founders, investors, intrapreneurs, and entrepreneurs, Designing the Successful Corporate Accelerator is a practical guidebook for anyone with a passion for corporate innovation and entrepreneurship.
