Text Incubator’s partnership has been transformative, offering a new acquisition channel and free access to their Developer Program and API. This has allowed us to save on costs and scale our app effectively, all while growing our brand.

We’ve been working with LiveChat’s product designers to gather the most relevant guidance on the best way to build the app’s interface. Also, with their Marketplace, LiveChat created a strong marketing and sales program enabling a new acquisition channel for us.
Numbers speak for themselves — after five years since the product launch, we have over 2600 customers and the number is continuously growing. They bring almost $300,000 in monthly recurring revenue (MRR), and the average revenue per user (ARPU) reached $110.5 at the end of September 2022.
Head of ChatBot
I’m so grateful and humbled to have been a part of the Text Accelerated program. The professionals and advice we had access to championed me and my startup with invaluable steps forward on our journey. I’d recommend Text Accelerated for dedicated founders striving for continuous learning and growth.
Being part of the Text Accelerated Program has been an amazing opportunity and journey for me. I learned a lot about building a quality product and the best way to bring it to market. The quality of the weekly sessions and the engagement there expanded my horizons on what is possible to achieve. What makes this program even better is that the team at Text is incredibly helpful, supportive, and friendly. I feel like I made lifelong connections, and I can’t wait for the next chapter of my product.

One of the main challenges startups face is adapting the product to the market's real needs. Thanks to Text Accelerated, I had a unique opportunity to immerse myself in the world of chat customer service through direct conversations with the LiveChat team. Our weekly workshops broadened my perspective and allowed me to focus on creating a product based on real value for the user. If you want to accelerate your startup's growth, Text Accelerated is the place to be.

with Text Accelerated
Do I need to have a team to apply?
No, you don’t need to have a team to apply. We accept applications from individuals.
How do you choose who will be invited?
We have an admission process open to anyone, anywhere in the world. You can apply here. We’re inviting chosen teams to interview online and then decide. The video interviews are held on a rolling basis from September to October.
Does it cost money to participate?
No, our accelerator program is entirely free.
Where does the Text Accelerated program happen?
The program is happening remotely. It features weekly meetings with customers (Monday, 2 pm CEST) and weekly demos (Friday, 2 pm CEST).
What can I expect from the weekly meetings with customers in the Text Accelerated program?
We’d like our makers to start working with customers as quickly as possible. Starting from day one - we’re planning to have weekly customer sessions. We will meet with different customers from text.com each week and discuss their challenges, needs, and working methods. Each team could ask questions regarding their solution; remember to do this without suggesting anything to the customer (we’ll have a quick workshop on customer interviews first). Designed to provide comprehensive insights, these meetings equip you with the knowledge to boost your project’s success.
What is the time commitment?
We have two main activities each week - customer meetings on Monday and demo on Fridays - they will last up to an hour and a half each. So that’s three hours weekly. Then there are mentoring sessions (optional). The program aims to give you support and space as we expect you will focus on creating your solution. We’re looking for teams that will treat this time as the most productive one for them and deliver product increments each week.
What happens at the end?
The program ends with a demo day. We’re inviting our partners and customers to this meeting so you can present your product to a broader audience. Besides the demo day, makers should have a refined product ready to launch for the customers. Then we’re starting distribution among text.com channels.
Do you invest in the projects at the end of the program?
We do not invest any money.
I'm actively fundraising or taking part in another program. Can I still apply?
It depends on whether you will have time. We expect teams to be fully engaged and deliver every week.
