Mentorship is critical to early-stage startup development

The Desai Accelerator is opening its doors for founders and entrepreneurs to benefit from our world-class mentors. Each participant will have the opportunity to connect 1-on-1 with at least two of our mentors for 20-minute sessions. Our mentors are entrepreneurs, investors, industry experts, community leaders, faculty, and of course University of Michigan alumni.


  • 4:30 pm – Doors and Registration Opens
  • 5:00 pm – Mentoring Sessions Begin
  • 6:40 pm – Networking Event

Criteria to Attend

With only 20 spots available for this intimate event, we are limiting attendance to startup founders who meet certain criteria.

  • You are the founder of a tech-enabled startup (technology must be core to the business)
  • You have a functional prototype
  • Your startup is venture backable, seeking exit within 10 years

If you don’t meet the criteria (yet), we still invite you to attend one of our information sessions – virtually or in-person – to learn more about our 16-week business accelerator program.
