Rethinking how to support the founders of impact companies

We hear about it over and over again.  There's not enough time in today's current accelerators to truly help, mentor, and guide first time founders.  On top of that, the "survival of the fittest" mentality born from extreme 'bro culture' is killing innovation.  

With a desire to do it differently and to best support the greatest impact innovators with the most amazing ideas, Chad & Brett founded Icademy - a start-up academy that goes beyond a fixed timeframe, provides exceptional mentoring and brings the greatest experts together to focus on one thing: you.
