What is Galvanizer's program like?
Our 8-week summer program runs from July 6th to August 28th and offers the following:
GAL Groups - Weekly hour-long virtual accountability / mastermind meetings of 5-6 peer founders to keep you motivated and moving forward
Expert Office Hours - Get personalized feedback through intimate virtual discussions with experts (i.e. founders, VCs, operators) and dive deeper into your topics of interest
Community Connections - Virtual community sessions for peers to brainstorm various topics and celebrate achievements
Virtual Pitch Day - Present the progress you made over the summer to investors and professionals to network and get feedback before kickstarting your fundraising efforts
You’ll also get access to our:
Founder Directory - A catalog of Galvanizer founders from every cohort
Advisor Directory - Network of industry experts who you can contact for one-on-one advice
GAL Wiki and Online Forum - Meet other founders, exchange ideas and share resources (e.g. articles, blogs, online tools, templates, accelerator programs, etc.)
Last but not least, we are here for you, period. That means whatever your company needs, we'll do our best to tailor our curriculum and resources based on your feedback.
