Impact Startup Studio

Frequently Asked Questions

Powertrain Accelerator is different from other programs out there, since ours offers a collaborative approach to venture building, stemming from our DNA as impact startup studio.

Startups that are part of our early-stage program have access to services including  product development, go-to-market & company strategy. This work program is defined and led by founders.

Our Accelerator is an equity-free program for startups paying the full-fee. However, we are actively looking for top percentile startups to partner up with, and are open to reduce the program fee significantly in exchange for equity participation upon discussion.

Our accelerator program caters to startups across multiple stages. If you need help creating a MVP(Minimal Viable Product) we can help!

The focus of our collaboration will be on early market validation and executing your product strategy by creating an MVP during the period. 

These startups can have a great deal of success if the founders have domain expertise and are already working on an early -possibly offline- version of their business model.

The program is 100% virtual and can be attended from anywhere in the world. That being, said, we have our doors open for all founders in our offices in San Pedro Garza García, Nuevo León, México and encourage them to visit us.

For us, it doesn’t matter if you have a team or you are a single person looking for co-founders. We are here to help you and your startup. So, this should not be a reason for you to not apply. 

Early-stage startups solving big real-world problems, with early market validation, even if pre-launch. Teams with clear leadership skills and strategic capabilities to plough through the challenges and uncertainty startups typically face.
