Throughout the last few years, Target has been helping startup companies learn the ropes of retail through our accelerator programs.

Our portfolio of programs now includes Target Takeoff; Target Incubator; the Target + METRO retail accelerator, certified by Techstars; and the India-based Target Accelerator Program.

Through these programs, startups receive access to Target resources including mentors and expertise to help them learn about mass retail. For Target, working with startups provides the opportunity to consider testing outside innovations that might someday help us enhance our assortment and guest experiences.

Target Incubator is our latest accelerator program and is focused on helping the next generation of entrepreneurs further develop their businesses.
