C5 Accelerate currently runs accelerators in Bahrain and Washington D.C.. The eight-week structured program of mentorship is divided into a series of sprints and tutorials that cover all aspects of scaling up, with a focus on scaling using the cloud. To facilitate this, each participant company/organization receives up to $50k AWS credits. The program concludes with a pitch day, when founders have the opportunity to pitch their companies and organizations to potential investors from C5, AWS and their respective global investor networks. The program is supported by an extensive community of international mentors and, on completion of the program, companies/organizations will receive certification whereupon they will enter a peer network that will provide ongoing support and guidance.
