Lighthouse Labs is a non-profit startup accelerator based in Richmond, Virginia. Twice a year they provide cohorts of 6-10 startups over three months of tailored mentorship, extensive education in scaling a startup, and more. Lighthouse Labs receives hundreds of applications per cohort and is intentional about supporting founders who identify as underrepresented.
Scroobious runs pitch workshops as part of their curriculum, providing direct help to founders on their pitches in advance of Lighthouse Labs' demo day.
“Scroobious was a great addition to our accelerator program. Their approach to pitch preparation was straightforward and flexible to companies in various stages and industries. Our founders came away with a solid foundation and structure for clearly communicating their company’s unique story. “ - Laura Shibut, Program Director
“Having spent a lot of time on my pitch deck already I came into the presentation thinking it would be a little redundant but I was very wrong - even the seemingly minor points can make a big difference. Really appreciated this one (especially ahead of actually pitching!)" - Lighthouse Labs startup founder
