Wharton Entrepreneurs Workshop #28 — “Incubators & Accelerators vs. Doing It on My Own: How Do I Decide?”

Over the last few years, the landscape of financing alternatives for seed-stage companies has become a lot more complicated for founders. In particular, the number of incubators and accelerators supporting startups in the Bay Area alone has exploded.

In this Wharton Entrepreneurs Workshop, Canice Wu, the president of Plug and Play, and Renata Streit Quintini, a partner at Felicis Ventures, address many of the vexing questions that founders and entrepreneurs must answer when launching a company.

The core of their discussion centers around whether a startup can be better served by joining up with an incubator/accelerator, or by simply doing it alone and building from the ground up with support from an experienced investor.
