The G2M Business Accelerator applies the scientific method to new products and business start-ups. It has 4 phases: 1) it tests whether your idea is good, 2) if your business model is viable, 3) helps you with sales, marketing, capital acquisition, and scaling your company, and 4) a revenue accelerator. Program participants have access to cutting-edge tools, methodologies, financial resources, accomplished mentors, grants, and office space. The UVU BRC is the hub for helping entrepreneurs accelerate their access to money, markets and mentors.
