Case Study : Pearse Lyons Accelerator

For 3 years Dogpatch Labs partnered with Alltech to help establish and run the world’s leading non-equity, late-stage AgTech accelerator, named after their late founder Dr. Pearse Lyons.

How Our Accelerators Work

Strategic Alignment

We work side-by-side with your innovation team to understand your needs and market position, setting KPIs to ensure your strategy ensures the right mix of innovation and disruption.

Programme Development

We collaborate on designing an inclusive accelerator programme – hosted both virtually and in-person – that helps to achieve all your strategic objectives.

Recruitment & Selection

To find the best startups that match your priorities we conduct a global search by following a robust and inclusive recruitment process. Together we conduct interviews to find the top 10 startups in your industry.

The Programme

Over the course of 3 months, startups build and collaborate with the corporate partner to set up real-time pilots, form exclusive partnerships, and further shape their business proposition.

Demo Day

The programme culminates with all the selected startups pitching at a ‘Demo Day’. This is the moment where the final participants get the chance to pitch to both investors and the corporate executive team.
