Since 2008, PIE has been an ongoing series of experiments. First as a coworking space then as an early stage startup accelerator then as an accelerator for accelerators. Now, we’re embarking on our next experiment: the PIE Cookbook, an open source guide designed to help anyone, anywhere accelerate anything.
We’re excited to share what we’ve learned over the last 8 years — especially with the hopes that we help you avoid the mistakes we made.
To provide more context on the PIE Cookbook and why we’re so motivated to give away what we’ve learned for free, we’ve gathered up some of our Medium content for you:
- It’s time for a new flavor of PIE
- What experiment is PIE cooking up next?
- Want to start an accelerator? Don’t start an accelerator
- Brands are more than a checkbook: Why I’m excited about the PIE Cookbook
- Unnecessarily proprietary: Why I’m insanely excited to open source PIE
We’ll continue to publish on Medium and here as we learn from — and screw up with — Kickstarter, as we work to develop and share our content out in the open, and as we collaborate on this new offering with communities around the world.
And if you’re interested in getting more details on the PIE Cookbook and its potential applications — even if you have no desire to start an accelerator of your own — please visit us on Kickstarter. We’re hoping to connect with as many amazing startup communities as we possibly can.
