Indianapolis-based Elevate Ventures is partnering with GrowthX, an early-stage venture capital fund based in California, to create a new entrepreneurial program. The partners say the program, which is called the Sales and Marketing Accelerator, will integrate GrowthX’s go-to-market system with Elevate’s entrepreneur programming.
“Elevate Ventures is a perfect partner for GrowthX, as both of our organizations share a world view that entrepreneurism can fuel the Indiana economy and create jobs when capital is combined with go-to-market expertise,” said Andrew Goldner, chief executive officer and founding partner of GrowthX.
The program, which officially kicked off earlier this month, offers access to GrowthX’s live coaching and an on-demand master class. The partners say the program is the first of its kind, focused on helping entrepreneurs grow revenue and determine product-market fit.
“We are excited to partner with GrowthX and provide our portfolio companies access to its world-class go-to-market system,” said Elevate Ventures’ CEO Christopher Day. “Our goal is to build strong, sustainable businesses in Indiana and this partnership will help us better serve our entrepreneurs as they work to commercialize their products and find product-market fit.”
Participants will also be paired with one of Elevate’s entrepreneurs-in-residence who will work together throughout the 16-week accelerator.
