Alchemist offers a structured path to mentorship, traction, fundraising and community for founders with ambitious aspirations.
While all founders may participate in our structured program and curriculum, much of the experience is personalized to the needs of your company. This is partly why we limit the number of participants in the program.
The program is designed for founders to build their companies in the way that works for them. Many of the program’s elements are optional – founders may choose to what extent their participation is relevant to their business.
The structured program anchors on a curriculum of group gatherings, including the famous Alchemist Weekly Gathering (usually on Thursdays). Here you check in with your peers to share what you have accomplished and exchange feedback on roadblocks. These sessions are often followed by expert talks and workshops.
Alchemist’s Feedback Summits are day-long gatherings focused on market traction and fundraising, supplemented with shorter gatherings on topics founders identify as particularly relevant to them.
Outside of these group gatherings, your experience is punctuated with individualized mentoring sessions with Alchemist Partners, successful CEOs, and other experts matched specifically to your company for the duration of the program.
These Alchemist experts are also available to you for one-off consultations on particular questions.
Social and community events are optional, but Alchemist alums often cite their relationships built with peer founders through these events as a highlight of their Alchemist experience.
The Alchemist Program capstone is Demo Day, at which you present to an invitation-only group of global investors.
