Is this what accelerators are really like?

We all like to think we are creative autonomous beings

But accelerators make all businesses look the same


The goal of the accelerator is to get you VC money

VC businesses have to look a certain way

And when you look a certain way to get VC money you have tied yourself to the VC’s economic goal and time frame

And booom you have traded your time for money

Which is basically time slavery, no?
