Accel has announced SeedToScale 2.0, an open-source platform for community knowledge, to provide future entrepreneurs with practical information that will enable them to scale.
For entrepreneurs in Southeast Asia and India, SeedToScale, a project of Accel, was incubated in India in 2020. As a knowledge platform reinforced by the combined expertise of Accel’s family of founders, operators, and partners, SeedToScale was created. Over 500,000 users get access to the 300 pieces of material created by the platform’s 80+ business leaders, successful founders, and seasoned mentors.
Accel has evolved SeedToScale into an open-source platform for community knowledge in its first significant upgrade. Accel wants the site to be a repository of insights that draws on the expertise of entrepreneurs, writers, VCs, and industry professionals through SeedToScale 2.0. The founders of fresh start-ups will gain more thorough insights pertinent to their particular situations from this chosen content.
An improved visual interface has been added to SeedToScale’s latest iteration to make it easier to obtain insights. The platform’s new information architecture makes it easy to retrieve pertinent multi-format content, and its redesigned visual language simplifies navigation. The platform provides users with a fully immersive experience thanks to content that is classified by sector and a “Focus Mode” to reduce distractions.
Anand Daniel, Partner at Accel, said, “Accel is dedicated to supporting the startup ecosystem beyond capital investment, with a long-standing history of supporting founders with our mentorship, expertise, and network connections. SeedToScale 2.0 is another milestone in our ongoing commitment to empowering startup founders by providing them with the tools and resources they need to accelerate their growth and amplify their impact.”
