Programs & Services

From our mentorship service to accelerative programming for entrepreneurs and innovators, NextGEN has a wealth of resources you can tap into. Explore all the assets NextGEN can connect you with.

NextGEN mentors provide unbiased, conflict-free, practical, and actionable advice on a long-term basis. MIT’s strict code of ethics ensures a safe, trusting environment for our members. Our team-based mentorship program is what our members mention most when they talk about how NextGEN has helped them.
The NextGEN Accelerator is a unique opportunity for Greenville founders to engage with successful, experienced founders in a fun and collaborative environment- at no cost to their business. This program runs twice a year, with 6-10 cohort members for 8 weeks at a time.
Workshops provide routine educational opportunities that are hands on, interactive and help move startups forward on a specified topic with the assistance of a subject matter expert or founder. Workshops will be open to a larger number of clients than growth labs and be formatted as a long, stand alone session.
Growth Labs is a more advanced workshop series- a double-click on what we can cover in only one week of the accelerator and a more personalized approach to learning than sitting in the same room with dozens of your peers. Growth Labs span 3-4 weeks and are tailored for 4-6 founders at a time so they can spend each session actively working on their business directly with a subject matter expert.

With a series of foundational events, NextGEN offers endless opportunities for startups, community supporters, and partners to get connected to the resources they need at the stage when they need them most. But not every stage looks the same – our events reflect these differences. Find the one that’s right for you from our monthly Founders Forums (for founders, their teams, and supporters) to the Venture Summit to SUDs (Startup Drinks)!
