Unleash the power of Business AI

The Business AI Advanced Program is a cohort-based accelerator for any company that uses artificial intelligence in any of its forms to power a business software solution. From real-time video streaming analysis to failure detection using images and deep learning, your business solution is welcomed here.

The goal of this program is to prepare you to raise your first significant round of capital. We help you have conversations with SaaS/AI investors and get your pitch and investor communications in shape. We also work on accelerating your acquisition of customers. The goal is to give you the tools you need to move from Minimum Viable Product (M2) to Minimum Viable Repeatability (M3).

To apply

To be a part of this Advanced Program, you will need to either:

  • Develop your company to Milestone 2 in The Intelligent Accelerator and complete a Milestone 2 Readiness Review;
  • OR
  • follow the instructions below to make a direct application to the program

The "no application" way

The Business AI Advanced Accelerator Program is part of The Intelligent Accelerator™. If you have successfully completed all of the Steps to get to Milestone 2 on The Intelligent Accelerator, that's awesome! When you get to the Milestone 2 Readiness Review Prep Step, you will be prompted to set up a review with our staff and mentors. During that Review, we'll assess your readiness for this Advanced program. There's no application. The Readiness Review is all you need. Just be sure you complete the Readiness Review by the "Apply by" date shown above.

The direct application way

On occasion, we do accept a limited number of companies that have not built their company on The Intelligent Accelerator. However, we strongly recommend that you sign up for The Intelligent Accelerator and complete the work to advance your company to Milestone 2. This self-paced accelerator significantly improves your chances of acceptance into the Business AI Advanced Accelerator Program and ensures that you have the same foundation as other participating Founders. You can start your journey on The Intelligent Accelerator today. There's no application and no waiting for the Foundation Program.

If you choose to submit a direct application for the Business AI Advanced Program, simply complete the BRIIA Guided Progress Score™ (GPS) questionnaire and save your results using the "Apply to an Advanced Program" button.

After saving your GPS, we will be in touch with you to discuss your readiness for our Advanced Accelerator Programs.

To be an "Advanced" company, you will need to have a strong understanding of all the topics we cover in our Foundation programs and have completed the prerequisites for the Advanced program. Our approach to developing companies — based on years of experience and feedback from founders — is effective and unique. We will mutually determine whether or not this program is right for you. After review, we may require some pre-work in order to be accepted.

The Program details

The Business AI Advanced Accelerator Program is a series of in-person and online workshops. Assuming that we will all be able to safely travel and gather indoors, the Program begins with a two day Sprint Camp at BRIIA's facilities in the San Francisco Bay Area. Your presence is required for this portion of the program.

After the kickoff, and equipped with some new tools and perspective, you are then free to return to your home base or remain in the Bay Area.

During the next 5 weeks, there will be weekly group sessions and individual mentoring sessions These sessions will be conducted online using Zoom.

Finally, all participants will reconvene at BRIIA's facilities for a final two-day workshop. Meetings with investors will be held on the following day.

COVID conditions

The Program details above describe how the program will operate when there are no COVID restrictions.

At present we plan to hold the opening 2-day Kickoff and final 3-day Closing Summit in person at a facility in the San Francisco Bay Area. To be a part of the Cohort, you should plan your travel and accommodations accordingly.

However, it is uncertain what restrictions will be in place when we are scheduled to convene, and it is possible the Advanced Program will be conducted completely virtually.

Be sure to leave your contact information below if you are interested in keeping up to date on these changing circumstances.

Costs

Founders that have been through our programs have told us that they would be willing to pay many more times than what we ask. We always try to provide a maximum amount of value to you and your startup. The cost of the Advanced program is $495.00. This helps us defray, but not erase, what it costs us to put on the Program. Payment is due when you apply for the program, but is refunded if you are not accepted.

If, as a condition of your acceptance into the program, there are Foundation courses that need to be completed on The Intelligent Accelerator, the cost of enrolling in these courses is an additional cost to you. Foundation courses are typically $39 to $59.

You are responsible for your own travel arrangements and accommodations.

There is no cost for access to mentors and Advanced courses during the Advanced Program.

After completing the Advanced Program, you will continue to have access to The Intelligent Accelerator's Mentors, Courses and Provisions at standard rates.

When you are accepted to the Business AI Advanced Program, we don't ask you to give up a chunk of equity. Nor do we provide you with any cash. We do ask you to grant us an option to purchase up to 20% of the first significant round of capital that you raise after completing this Advanced Program. If, and only if, you are successful at raising a round of capital will we have the opportunity to share in your success. If you would like to discuss our approach to making an investment in your company with us, please let us know by email at [email protected]. We'll get back to you as soon as we are able, usually no more than a business day or two.
