It’s been one year since the completion of the PIE Cookbook Kickstarter campaign, so it seemed only fitting that we let you know that we’ve reached the PIE Cookbook 0.9 beta release!
That’s right! All of the content in one spot. With a table of contents, even.
Now, admittedly, the beta still has quite a few flaws. There are any number of typos. It’s repetitive in sections. It’s repetitive in sections. And we have an ever-growing list of things we still desperately want to write.
Still, even with all of that, this release provides plenty of details and tips on how to start and manage your very own startup accelerator — and provides you with plenty of opportunities to tell us how to improve it.
In this version of the PIE Cookbook, we cover things like:
- Establishing the culture
- Designing the workspace
- Budgeting for an accelerator
- How much staff you need
- How to select startups
- A typical accelerator week
- All sorts of guidance on mentoring
- … and a bunch more topics
But we’re not stopping there. We remain dedicated to continuing to write, refine, and publish this guide, out in the open, so that we can create the most comprehensive documentation available to support folks who run accelerators — or who dream of building their own one day.
Read the PIE Cookbook 0.9 beta.
- Realizing that a Github repository isn’t the easiest format to consume, we’re working to make versions of the current document available in a more digestible web format, in PDF, and in ebook format. Stay tuned!
- We’re continuing to refine the document in preparation for the release of PIE Cookbook 1.0.
- If you have suggestions for topics, find typos, or need us to provide additional content on an existing topic, please feel free to submit an issue on Github.
- If you want to stay up-to-date on the PIE Cookbook and collaborate with other folks in the accelerator community, please consider joining our Slack channel.
More soon! ❤️
