Increasing Velocity With Salesforce Accelerate

Salesforce’s passion for innovation and entrepreneurial success is embodied in our exclusive AppExchange accelerator program, Salesforce Accelerate.

Salesforce Accelerate is designed to provide the insights, learning, and support that startups need to strategically align with Salesforce and accelerate their time-to-market with AppExchange. As a participant of the program, companies will benefit from regular virtual programming and in-person workshops at key points in the journey.

We unveiled a new format for the program earlier this year, providing a Grow track for growth-stage AppExchange partners as well as a Build track for startups and established software companies new to the Salesforce Ecosystem. Right on the heels of our first Grow cohort graduation back in June, we launched a pilot version of the Build program in EMEA with 8 companies. Feedback from both formats of the program has been great.

“The Accelerate Program provides us with an unfair advantage as an AppExchange partner”
— Gary Hanna, VP Sales, Fielo

I am looking forward to the graduation of the EMEA Build cohort at the Salesforce Tower in London, UK on October 16, 2019. If you are in London at that time, come to see their pitches and talk with the companies about their solutions and experience during the Accelerate program. [RSVP here]

Salesforce Accelerate EMEA Build (Cohort 6)

Continuing the Journey

Learning from the success of the EMEA program we are proud to announce the launch of our Build program for North American companies on October 1, 2019, in San Francisco. 10 companies have been selected for inclusion in this cohort as a means to accelerate their success on the AppExchange and the Salesforce ecosystem.

Salesforce Accelerate Build (Cohort 7)

We are planning a public event with these companies that will take place on November 6, 2019, in San Francisco. Save the date and RSVP here if you can join us to get to know the cohort better and to find out what they are working on. Follow along their journey with us at @salesforcestart and on Facebook as we track the progress of these companies and they forge a path to market via the largest enterprise software app store — the AppExchange.
