Scaling a business is much harder than starting a business. Nine out of ten startups will fail. This is a hard and dreary truth. Cold statistics like these are not intended to discourage entrepreneurs, but to encourage them to work smarter. A good product and a strong technical team are not a guarantee of a success story. Founders should not ignore the business process and issues of critical path because it is not their expertise. It can eventually deprive them from any future in that startup.

API10X — Advanced Accelerator Program

The Arizona Prosperity Initiative (API) was strategically engineered to level up the Phoenix startup ecosystem from within. What if startups could use a team of experts to solve their business challenges, followed by 12 weeks of mentorship without giving up shares of their company?

API10X is a 12-week accelerator program for second-stage startup companies to cultivate, mentor and “rise” local entrepreneurs who will create jobs today given access to capital, expertise, skills and talent.

Early stage startups’ founders have to wear many hats: sales, finance, planning and execution. At the same time, thought has to be put into building up traction. This critical path is extremely challenging and filled with road blocks.

Struggling to increase traction?

It takes the right resources to generate consistent growth. Not all companies are created equal. API10X is tailored to each company for an exclusive founders’ experience. Our team of experts actively resolve your specific core problem. Our mentors provide guidance, sponsorship and monitor your performance throughout the program.

Initially ran for cities’ entrepreneurial resources and universities, API10X is opening its doors to Arizona’s most promising entrepreneurs. To be inclusive and welcome a diverse cohort, API10X onboards tech and non-tech startups.
